I bought Skíðblaðnir in 2006 in Roskilde, Denmark, and have sailed and maintained the boat during my doctoral years, mainly on Kiel Fjord. On several occasions (e.g. 2014 and 2015) I participated with Skíðblaðnir in the annual Rum-Regatta in Flensburg, a regatta specifically for traditional boats and ships with quirky rules: The first gets ridiculed with a mock prize, but the second receives a 3 litre bottle of local rum. I have also sailed along the Swedish coast in 2010, following a leg of a medieval itinerary, which I have discussed in my doctoral dissertation.
