Experience the old lifeboat at sea

The oldest lifeboat in Denmark is launched from Tornby Strand if the weather allows it. The sailors need to train their rowing skills. The captain wants them to row on the beat, so he stands in the front of the boat, yelling the beat for everyone to hear - it is a fun and different experience. The old lifeboat is launched at 19.00 every Friday from the 1st of May to the 12th of September.

The sailors don't only train for fun. Every year there is a race with the other local guilds. The price is an honour.

The old lifeboat is heavy and the sea is often lively, så sometimes the sailing is cancelled, if the weather is rough.
