The Vikings are back!

The river was visited this week by a replica viking longship Gaia. The vessel, belonging to the the Gaiaship Foundation was rowed from North Shields to Newcastle this morning and returned under power this evening, before returning to Norway.

Gaia was accompanied throughout her stay by the sailing ship Next Wave owned by Youth With A Mission (YWAM) of Marine Reach Ministries.
