A longship

Alan writes:
'I read that a Viking longship will be visiting Orkney today 1-7-05 from Norway on its way to the Isle of Man. Here are pictures of a reconstruction of a Viking longship which made a similar journey from Norway to the Isle of Man in July 1979. One snap is of it leaving Kirkwall, but what is the sailing ship in the foreground I wonder? The other snap has the longship with its sail raised at Stromness.'
