About the visit at the court website
The visit began in the Academia das Ciências the Lisbon, where the president Prof. Luís Aires-Barros welcomed Victoria. During the visit Victoria gave the Academy The Linnaeus Apostles - Global Science & Adventure, a work containing eleven books totaling over 5,500 pages. It is the first time statements of Linnaeus's disciples have been translated in English.
Ambassador Caroline Fleetwood then hosted a working lunch at the residence on the theme Actual in Portugal. The topics discussed included the country's textile and shoe industry, which are the major export areas of the country, and that next year is 375 years of when the diplomatic and trade relations between Sweden and Portugal started.
During the evening a National Day reception for about 300 people was held at the Volvo Pavilion at Waterfront "Race Village" in Lisbon.
On Friday, Victoria took part in the ministerial Blue Week, a conference that focuses on marine economy and marine environmental issues.
Portuguese President Aníbal António Cavaco Silva received the Crown Princess for a meeting held in the presidential palace, the Palácio de Belém, in Lisbon.
The Crown Princess was onboard Team SCA's boat during a so-called Pro-Am Race. Team SCA competes for Sweden in the Volvo Ocean Race and has a female crew. The Crown Princess is godmother to SCA's boat and had previously met the crew in August 2014 in Stockholm.

Photos from Team SCA
"It’s very exciting being onboard, we didn’t have the best wind, but it was lot of fun and in the the end we did gets some wind!" After racing the Crown Princess visited the team at their shore base, and even assisted with some of the food packing for the next leg.
Before leaving the Team SCA’s Skipper Sam Davies presented the Crown Princess with her very own custom Team SCA LEGO figure to match the full team and their LEGO boat which has been travelling the world during the race.

A short video from Team SCA, Victoria sailing

Despite a crown princess at the helm the day wasn't so good for Team SCA which was beaten by most of the boats on the starting grid.
Crown Princess, what happened?
- We did not have the wind with us, laughed Victoria when Expressen met her after the race.
She is excited by the contest and to have been on board the boat and filled with admiration for the women who compete with the boat:
- There is such extreme conditions that few understand. Being onboard such a boat is an incredible feeling, it leaves so much energy.
How was it?
- Fantastic.
You looked to be strong?
Victoria laughs:
- Well, I would never manage it like they do. I'm not even close to that routine with the sea. It would be quite impossible for me.

Sail World - Volvo Ocean Race – Kronprinsessan vid rodret

Video of Victoria sailing
Swedish Princess at Sea with Female Crew _ The News Video

Victoria was flying back home from Lisbon to Sweden via the Kastrup Airport in Denmark. Her flight from Kastrup to Stockholm was going to leave at 22.45. When she got to Kastrup, she was told that her flight is indefinitely suspended.
The court resolved this by arranging a new transport for Victoria. When Expressen reached Ulrika Näsholm from the court's information department, who has been together with Crown Princess Victoria in Lisbon, she said that Victoria and her company right now are on the way up to Stockholm in the car.
SAS also sent out text messages to all passengers that the flight until further notice was delayed and that the new information would come at 23.00.
The reason was that all the flights from Kastrup were set up due to a trade union action among the ground crew that has been going on since 20 o'clock in the evening.
Crown Princess Victoria has a number of commitments in the morning at home in Sweden, but according to Ulrika Näsholm none of this will be affected by the delay.
- The Crown Princess is going up to Stockholm in the car. There is a strike at Kastrup and there is no aircraft, we can not influence to that. But it will not change the celebration or the Crown Princess commitments, the program will continue as planned tomorrow, said Näsholm.
Already at 10.30, Victoria is along with Prince Daniel in Uppsala for the National Day celebrations. In the afternoon, she also has an official commitment on Haga Castle and in the evening the televised celebration of Skansen.
Victoria fast på Kastrup _ Nyheter _ Expressen
Translation

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department, to Aftonbladet:
- The Crown Princess will travel by car to Stockholm tonight.
With the delayed and canceled plan at Kastrup the crown princess will not be home in Stockholm until the earliest late in the night or in the morning hours for the National Day celebrations.
- The return will be significantly delayed. But we have a very dutiful royal house and a dutiful crown princess who takes up to Stockholm in the night to complete the National Day celebrations as intended, says Margareta Thorgren.

So maybe we will see a little tired Victoria this morning in Uppsala. It is about 650 km from Kastrup to Haga Palace and sleeping at a car isn't always very easy.

Victoria met on Saturday, the National Day, at the Haga Palace ethologist Jane Goodall. Victoria has met her earlier, in 2009 at the Nordens Ark. During the meeting environmental issues were on the agenda and Victoria got information about Jane Goodall's work.
