The faering’s new home

Our faering was purchased by a group of Viking reenactors in New Hampshire, Draugar Vinlands. Here are the new owners, in full Viking mode.

They hand sewed a bright red sail, added authentic period rigging and have set sail on Great Bay on the Picataqua River near Portsmouth, New Hampshire. If you live nearby, keep a watchful eye for Vikings and hide your gold and your daughters.

As conservative Vikings, they started off with a reefed mainsail. And they certainly struck some Vikingesque poses on board.

The day they picked up the boat from the shop, they arrived in full Viking outfits. It made the day for my six year old grandson Ellis.

They even made a movie, with an authentic Viking soundtrack, of two Vikings rowing the faering.
