A Small bit of Boat Hopping…
Excelsior Volunteer Will Paterson spent some of the 2017 season on another vessel, Boy Leslie, a British Smack who is run and maintained by a group of dedicated volunteers, chaired by Bjorn Abrahamsen, a good friend to Excelsior and her crew.
Will joined the crew of Boy Leslie taking part in Denmark’s annual Limfjorden Rundt, five days of close quarters sailing, to five different ports through the scenic Limfjorden, Denmark’s inland waters.
Below you will find a gallery of some of Will’s (amazing) shots of the races. With up to 65 other traditional ships taking part, it is a boat nerds dream, with fantastic sailing in the day and socialising with the crew in the evenings it is a great week for anyone with even a vague interest in sailing.
Inspired by the excitement of this adventure, EXCELSIOR is due to take part in these races along with Boy Leslie for 2018. You can book your berth now before they are all snapped up! Remember, this is a trip of a lifetime, and with bursary funding available to nearly anyone under the age of 25, make 2018 your year.
