Summer for me is a sailing season. Whether it’s with the Trondhjems Seilforeningen (TSF) for Wednesday regattas, or with friends for day cruises and overnight trips, I’m always trying to get on the water. An overnight trip to Tautra is a fantastic way to spend the weekend. On a good day you can sail there even in open boats like Yngling, and depending on the wind the trip can take 3-4 hours. Once on the island you can try some birdwatching or check out the remains of the medieval Tauterø Abbey. To stay overnight you can camp or sleep in “Cuba” – the cabin owned by TSF. If short trips are more your style, members of NTNUI Seiling can hire Yngling class boats from Skansen Harbour for three hours at a time – great for a couple of laps around Munkholmen.
