SHARE Caption Only: Viking ship’s sails billow in breeze

Viking replica ship sails across a fjord in Greenland at the start of a journey to North America in 1997. The vessel had rudder problems and had to be towed back to land, where it remained in dry dock awaiting this year's expedition. In July, the ship will make a second attempt to retrace a historic voyage to the New World.
