In Roskilde it will be welcomed with at great Viking Market at The Viking Ship's Museum. Also the town of Roskilde is supporting to make the return of The Sea Stallion to a festival for the whole town which - on the arriving day - will have flags with ship's logo on the main streets.

The Sea Stallion is expected to enter several harbours on its way from Ireland to Denmark but only one is specific: The Sea Stallion is expected to be in Portsmouth the 12th and 13 of July at the Maritime Museum.

In Denmark it is planned to make stops in Glyngøre in Limfjorden and in Ebeltoft by the famous Frigate Jylland - the largest wooden ship in the World - as the last stop before arriving in Roskilde.

During most of the voyage the Sea Stallion will be joined by the Cable One - although this ship is not able to pass through Limfjorden.
