Photos from the Wooden Boats from the Fjord Festival and regatta

The Wooden Boats from the Fjord Festival and regatta was held at The Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde August 16th-17th 2019. 
This wa the 21st time that Wooden Boats from the Fjord was held. The regatta has become a significant event in the maritime milieu around Roskilde Fjord and Isefjord, with participation from wooden boats that have been built and used on these two fjords. These include the traditional, round-sterned ships, which are an entirely unique boat type, developed for the special conditions that exist within these specific fjord areas. In addition, other wooden boats located in Roskilde Fjord and Isefjord will participate.

Each ship is a small piece of Danish cultural history, maintained with a dedicated effort from private owners, associations and museums. The wooden boats from the fjord are restored and maintained, for the enjoyment of the sailors themselves and also those who observe them from land. Each of the many enthusiasts contributes to preserving, communicating and keeping the maritime cultural history around the fjords alive.
