The public is invited to tour the ship starting Friday, November 8th thru Sunday, November 10th from 10am - 4pm daily. Ship tours are free and open to the public.
The Statsraad Lehmkuhl is sailed by the Royal Norwegian Naval Academy's first year officer cadets who are participating in leadership training and teambuilding during the trip. The cadets also get a strong foundation of basic seamanship during their weeks onboard. Stripped of modern communication technology, the students are forced to work together to overcome the timeless challenges and dangers of travelling the seas by sail. Statsraad Lehmkuhl has been part of the basic training program since 2002, whereby the Royal Norwegian Navy leases the ship for several months every year.
Norfolk has become a favorite port of call for the ship and her crew; this will be the 9th consecutive year that the ship has called on Norfolk as part of their sail-training schedule. The port visit is sponsored by Norfolk Festevents, Ltd. Guests are encouraged to witness Statsraad Lehmkuhl's ceremonial arrival into port, complete with song, at approximately 8am on Thursday, Nov. 7.
Public Visitation Schedule: Friday, November 8 - Sunday. November 10 from 10am - 4pm daily. Ship tours are free and open to the public.
