The Droebak Narrows

I Drøbak-sundet ligger den berømte Oscarsborg festning og gjennom dette sundet går hvert år den populære ‘Færderseilasen’ hvor sportsseilere kniver om  å tilbakelegge strekningen Oslo – Færder fyr – Oslo på kortest mulig tid. Her passerer en mindre pulje gjennom Drøbaksundet.
Den første seilasen startet opp i 1947 med deltagelse av 6 båter! I dag er det ikke uvanlig at seilasen omfatter mer enn 1000 båter! Besetningen antydes totalt å være rundt 6000 mann!

The very first regatta took place in 1947 with 6 sailboats participating. Today more than often the number og ships participating exceeds 1000 with a total crew of approximately 6000 people!
