Historic Vessel Vega, built-in 1892 by Ola Nerhus at his boatyard in Olve, Norway. Nerhus designed Vega to carry heavy concentrated cargo for trade in the North Sea and Baltic Sea. More than 125 years later Vega is still working. Since 2004 she carries free school and health supplies to remote islands in eastern Indonesia and to East Timor.
Once again Vega was invited to participate in the Singapore Yacht Show, a major event for boating in South East Asia. For 4 days we ran ourselves ragged showing Vega and explaining our mission. We sold books, coffee, and T-shirts to help raise funds for this years deliveries. It was a great chance to see old friends and meet new ones.
