Tvoroyri festival

Well it turns out that the first weekend after the summer solstice is a festival at Tvoroyri. A family fun day complete with bouncy castles and a BBQs but all centred around the rowing races. Traditional boats and crews converged on the town from all over Faroe and many came in national dress. The weather obliged and we had a leisurely day wandering around the town chatting with the publican, with John the Harbour master and with the crew of a Norwegian yacht that came in from Shetlamd last night. Customs came and searched the boat for alcohol and drugs.
