The Risör regatta is the highlight of the festival.
Risör woodenboat festival i August 2011.
There were many beautiful boats and very nice people. Risör is an old sailing town, and used to have one of the biggest fleet of sailing ships in Norway, but when the steam ships came Risör somehow did not make it.
But in the summer Risör rises to its old glory and is a home to many beautiful wooden ships.
In June Valtýr will come out of the winterstorage in Strömstad in Sweden, and then we will start cruising in Norway Sweden Denmark and perhabs go to Germany and France.
We will be on the water until end of September.
