The Royal Yacht out of hibernation

The Royal Yacht out of hibernation

15-04-2015 08:00:00


The Dannebrog has left its hibernation in Frederikshavn, where the ship has gone through the usual maintenance before the beautiful yacht is ready to be shown off during the royal couple's visit around Denmark during the summer.

The command is hoisted today, Tuesday, at 15.30, where the ship leaves the Naval Base in Frederikshavn and starts on the first part of the so-called floating preparatory school, which lasts till Tuesday, May 5, where Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Prince officially board the Dannebrog in Copenhagen.

The first sailings before the actual travels are to ensure that both this year's draftee’s crew and permanent crew are fully prepared before the first summer cruise. Safety is a top priority for the members of the Royal Family, the ship and for each crew member.

The draftee crew has received several months of intensive education and training at the Naval School, Center for Sergeant and Maritime training in Frederikshavn, under the direction of officers and noncommissioned officers from Dannebrog permanent crew.

The Royal Yacht Dannebrog will examine navigation conditions in some of the Danish ports and marine areas that the royal couple will visit or sail through during this summer's two journeys around Denmark.

One of the Royal Yacht first calls is Sønderborg where the ship docks on Saturday, April 18th around 16.00 and will be until Sunday morning. It is a tradition that the Royal Yacht enters the city on April 18th, to mark the anniversary of the Battle of Dybbøl, in 1864.
