North Sailing fleet prepared for the whale watching season
During the dark and long winter months the North Sailing employees repair and thoroughly prepare the wooden vessels for the upcoming season.
With Bjössi Sör at the wheel, North Sailing‘s initial vessel recently passed a test cruise with flying colours. Incidentally, Bjössi Sör is the father and grandfather to the North Sailing pioneers that launched this ship in 1995 following extensive repair work. Named Knörrinn, she is now entering her 22nd season.
Knörrinn has proved to be a reliable vessel. Under a different name at that time, she narrowly escaped in April 1963 as one of the worst winter storms ever to hit the Icelandic fleet at sea claimed the lives of 18 local fishermen.
