While in Danmark, Niels and I were able to get together a few times to drink some good Carl's Special - There are only two REAL brands of beer in Denmark, Tuborg & Carlsberg - I think Carl's Special is the best! - & eat several different types of local herring in Lynæs & Hundested - both are really small little fishing villages at the northern end of Sjælland - the island where the Danish capital of København is located. (see the maps)
Niels introduced me to his
girlfriend Ulla, some of the folks in Lynæs & took me out for a wonderful
traditional Danish lunch at the Hundested Kro (Inn).
|Lynæshavn 1918||Lynæshavn now||Lynæs 1892||Lynæs 1897||Sejlklubben Lynæs|
|Lynæs is pronounced sort of like "Lune-aas" and "havn" means harbor... Bådeværft is boatworks - Sejlklubben means "sail club." The prints of the old paintings were given to me by Niels. It seems that not much has changed since those paintings were made. They've been building local fishing boats & now pleasure boats (Lystbåde) at the Lynæs Bådeværft since 1886... Niels is the vice commodore & also the web master for the Sejlklubben Lynæs - have a look!|

to give you all an idea of what the area around Lynæs & Hundested
like... these villages are at the Kattegat entrance to the Isefjord. Niels gave
me an old Danish naval chart which I've scanned part of to share with you. The
other maps will give you an idea of where Lynæs & Hundested are
The photos were taken on really cold & windy days... damn... my Carl's Special almost froze, so I had to drink it quick! So... where are the original Lynæs Senior boats you ask? Check out the next page...
