NORFOLK (AP) -- A Norwegian tall ship is returning to Norfolk.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that the 98-year-old Statsraad Lehmkuhl is scheduled to dock at Otter Berth on Monday and depart on Wednesday. The ship is the largest three-masted barque in the world.

The public can tour the ship for free from 3 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

This is the eighth year the ship has come to Norfolk as part of its sail-training regimen for first-year officer cadets in the Royal Norwegian Naval Academy.
