Description

The first weekend in June is a very special day in Iceland reminding how important the sea and its sailors are to Icelandic history economy and people. It’s the only day when every ship in Iceland is in harbor, and all the sailors have a day off. Boats and ships of all sizes come into port carrying sailors eager to try their hands at strongman competitions and rowing competitions between ship crews and companies. On this day the Icelandic rescue squat displays a rescue at sea at Reykjavik harbor. Sailors day is a light-hearted occasion with lots of fun for the whole family.
