People are often similar to some animals that can be found on Shetland…
SAILS – This last week, Scalloway was visited by the Swedish school ship “Gunilla”. It is a wonderful sight to find three masts sticking up from a pier. The Upper Secondary School students had Open House for the local schools and, later, everyone else who were curious. I was guided by Susanne, who brightly answered all my questions about the ship, living conditions, how they work shifts, climb the masts and set the sails and how she was very happy to be a student in the “Ship & Maritime” program at the school on Ökerö.
If I had my druthers, I would like to try sailing before I get too old.
Shetland is often visited by school ships. The Norwegian school ship comes by to Lerwick’s Victoria Pier quite often during good weather. These ships are just magical when seen!
…then, again, Shetland’s sailing culture can be magical!
