The 100-year-old Norwegian tall ship, HNoMS Statsraad Lehmkuhl, will be making her only appearance in the United States in Norfolk. The ship will dock at Otter Berth next to the future Waterside District on November 7.
The Statsraad Lehmkuhl is sailed by the Royal Norwegian Naval Academy’s first-year officer cadets. The program provides leadership training and an opportunity to learn about the presidential electoral process. The crew also visits NATO headquarters and local Navy bases, along with team-building during the trip.
The ship will offer tours for the public during her seven days in Norfolk. She is scheduled to leave November 14, but arrival and departure times are approximate and are subject to change due to any possible inclement weather.
