was founded to re-build the traditional uisk vessel of Estonian islands and expose the local sea traditions to a wider audience.
In the early Middle Ages people from the western islands (Saaremaa, Muhu etc.) were called vikings and their vessels named huisk
(snake). It was a narrow and light-weighted vessel, carried easily over different hindrances.
The new uisk follows the characteristics of the large transport models of the 19th century.
The project also gives an opportunity to become a sponsor or do co-operation
with the organisation. You are welcome!
