Re: Norway as a sailing country

Thank you very much for your response! Your blog is great! I love the pictures, you live in a beautiful country!

It is a more sailing friendly country then they made me believe! I looked into insurance and some companies will not insure you when you sail a semi-extreme condition proof yacht like a bavaria up there. Yachts with aluminum build hull's would be a different story.. I guess it has cost them a lot in the past.. Unlucky for us...

I understand from your reply those heavy duty sailing yachts are not very popular in Norway? Somebody even told me that when you sail a classical sailing yacht with aluminum hull in Norwegians would look at it as if it is a fishing boat For a dutch person this comment is hilarious!

I am very curious to know how you think about this Perhaps a little discussion in private messaging?

Unless any of you other's like to join in of course! My opinion is that there is no sailing yacht as beautiful as an Aluminum build, classic sailing yacht like one from the architect Koopmans (senior). Yes I am a proud Dutch man sorry
