The voyage cannot be sailed in one stretch. The range of the longship is limited by the amount of water and provisions which can be carried. In addition, the crew needs times of rest ashore since the open warship is not designed for comfortable voyaging. Once the crew is ready to sail again, they have to wait for favourable wind in order to make a swift and safe passage to the next destination en route."
