Sailing the Norwegian traditional wooden boat "Oselvar", at Storebø, Austevoll, a small island community southwest of Bergen. With no keel, center board, or ballast weight, balance is carried out by moving your body around to counteract the force of the wind. The Oselvar is the national boat of Norway, and was rewarded the UNESCO Best Safeguarding Practices - 2016. It is the only traditional wooden boat with a racing class in the Norwegian Sailing Federation, which races by the rules of the International Sailing Federation (ISAF). The Oselvar is raced both with a sprit rig and various sized bermuda rigs.
