Who are the ships Clan "Skibslaget" ?
The Ships Clan are a branch of The Danish Scouts
movement and prior to Jensine, were known as being involved with
the rebuilding of Viking ships.
Our back ground is the Scout movement, even though the majority of
us have outgrown our traditional uniforms.
The ships Clan own Jensine, without any of the society´s members
having a private or economical interest in the ship.
The members are recruited from amongst people who are interested
in looking after an old sailing ship and who actively make an
effort to join in sailing and repairing Jensine.
THE DANISH SHIP PRESERVATION TRUST
By Hans Jeppesen - Chairman for THE DANISH SHIP PRESERVATION
The Cutter JENSINE and The Ships Clans in Haderslev are, with
good reason, well known by THE DANISH SHIP PRESERVATION TRUST and
many other places. The Cutter is a typical example from the last
small sailing ships period and JENSINE´s continuing navigation is
of a great significance for our present days understanding of the
Danish Maritium cultural history.
On fast land thousands of protected buildings tell us about the
housing conditions and working circumstances from older times. Our
maritime cultural heritage is unfortunately not preserved in the
same proportions, even though the ships are both working places and
The Ships Clan, responsible for JENSINE, have since 1970 , shown
by their example, how the restoring, maintaining and sailing are
closely connected when an old craft is to be preserved and The
Ships Clan contribution is, in addition, influenced by both
commitment and quality.
