SWAN
- LK243 -

The Swan is a restored fifie herring boat built in 1900. Long retired from being used as a working fishing vessel she is now operated as a sail training vessel in Shetland.

These images were taken prior to the Swan leaving Shetland to take part in Nordic Sail - A race from Denmark to Sweden and then to Norway. These images were part of an assignment for Shetland Life magazine and are featured in the August edition of the magazine.
