Norwegian Statsraad Lehmkuhl Making Norfolk its only U.S. Port
On Monday, November 7, 2016, the unique and majestic 102-year old Norwegian tall sailing ship “HNoMS Statsraad Lehmkuhl” will be making its only United States appearance as it is scheduled to arrive at approximately 10:00am in Downtown Norfolk, docking at Otter Berth next to the future Waterside District. The ship will provide public visitations during its stay and is scheduled to depart at approximately 3:00pm on Monday, November 14, 2016.

Norfolk has become a favorite port of call for the ship and her crew; this will be the 12th consecutive year that the ship has called on the City of Norfolk as part of their sail-training schedule. Guests are encouraged to come witness the Statsraad Lehmkuhl’s arrival into port as the crew will be in uniform and positioned on the three-masts singing the ship into port on Monday, November 7, 2016.

Public Visitation Schedule: The ship will be open for public visitation on Thursday, November 10, 2016, through Sunday, November 13, 2016, from 10:00am – 3:00pm. Please contact Festevents at 757-441-2345 or for official updates. Ship tours are free and open to the public.
