ENGLISH SUMMARY

Blanka is a replica of a rural sailing ship from the beginning 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.

Blanka Skeppslag (Blanka Ship Team), a non-profit association, has sailed and taken care of the ship since 2004, with support of the Museum, and was in 2018 trusted with the full ownership.

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.

In summer she seeks various harbors in the Stockholm archipelago and the lake Mälaren, e.g. Birka. Her winters are spent in Färingsö, where all spring and autumn work is carried out by the team.

Welcome to embark! Easily done by sending our annual fee 200 SEK (students 100) to pg 116 60 – 8, Blanka Skeppslag, adding your name and contact information (postal address, telephone, e-mail address etc).
