So did ESTIEM. They made an awesome video on "travel with ...
... Lasers, Stars and the very fast 49er (which is now an Olympic class I believe) were particularly evident. Photos taken, we upped sticks and headed out back the way we came, to drop our anchor after an hour at 12:45 at a small group of islets called Fjordholmen.
We didn’t do much for the rest of the day, just sat on the boat and read and sunbathed, trying our best to keep out of the strong breeze, which picked up during the afternoon. ...
