Annual regatta from Oslo to Tønsberg. Enjoy the spectacular sight of hundreds of sailboats on the Oslo Fjord on 9 June!
The Færder Regatta is one of the world's biggest overnight regattas. From its inception in 1947, with seven boats competing, "Færdern" has grown considerably and now more than 1,000 boats and up to 5,000 sailors participate.
Sending off more than 1,000 boats from what is a relatively confined space represents a logistical nightmare, but also a very spectacular sight that is well worth the trip.
The regatta is free to watch from the sidelines, but participation costs 1,000-5,500 NOK depending on the size of your boat. "Færdern" is organised by the Royal Norwegian Yacht Club.
