|Välkommen till Blanka skeppslag|
Blanka is a replica of a rural sailing ship from the end of
the 14th century. The origin was found at archeological excavations at
Helgeandsholmen in Stockholm in front of the House of Parliament, where
the Stockholm Mediaeval Museum is now situated.
The ship was built inside
the Museum, using mediaeval technique, material and methods, altogether
true to the origin. It was launched in 1990, is owned by the Museum but
taken care of and sailed by the non-profit association “Blanka
Skeppslag” (Blanka Ship Team).
We keep it fit for sailing,
meet regularly for sailmaking and various handicrafts in winter and
offer anyone interested to take part in our shorter or longer tours
every summer to experience and learn mediaeval sailing. By joining our
team you will be able to discover the amazing Swedish archipelago –
and help keeping Blanka alive. No prior sailing experience is necessary
if you are prepared to learn.
Her permanent summer harbor
is Skeppsholmen, below the Skeppsholmen Folk High School opposite the
Wasa Museum. Her winters are spent in Färingsö, where all spring and
autumn work is carried out by the team.
