The most popular Regatta in the Nordic Countries started just after the WW II. With a few boats in an overnight regatta from Oslo (Capital of Norway) to the the beginning of the fiord at the Faerder Light House and returning back to Oslo. A distantance of 2x100 km ( about 130 miles all in all). To Day, it's some miles shorter, in order to let all kinds of sailboats (no use of "motors" alowed") to be able to compete and participate. No matter of professionalisme in the skill of sailing
This year it was about 1200 boats in the race.
On our way back to our Summerhome, I did take some photos, not with my best Camera, but I hope you will have a clue. (This from the inner Oslofjord)
OK, then - it's enlarged here (You'll also see the Hills North of downtown Oslo in the Background)
Even more here. U Z? Can you count how many? They all have to sail during the Night.
Here they are - some of the boats - in the midle of inner Oslofjord- Allready a distance between the best in their class and the leisure sailorsClick to enlarge. It's hundreds heading south out of the fiord
Have a great weekend. Respect and love all your dearest incl cyberfriends.
