Trade, education and culture -- by sail

Hawila is a Norwegian 32 m long two-masted wooden ship, built in 1935. She is rigged as a gaff rigged galeas, with a mizzen mast nearly as high as the main mast. The vessel was originaly built to transport ice from the norwegian fjords to the swedish fisherman on the coast of Goteborg. After a long and adventurous story the vessel was left in disrepair in Copenhagen harbour. The Swedish state Maritime museum gave Hawila the status of cultural-historical value vessel in 2002. In 2014, Hawila was found by a group of friends and the vessel was donated to the newly created non-profit organization Hawila Project and after community-led reparation it started to sail again in 2017.
