Probably one of the few times father and son sail in a competition together.

King Harald is participating at the 8mR World Championships in Finland on 27.7.-3.8. with the family ship Sira.

The king was practising on Tuesday and was happy with the wind and said that the day was good, on Monday there had been too much wind. The king and his team are one of the big favourites but the king just said that they have to sail first.

The first day of racing is on Monday. The king and queen Sonja are staying at the royal ship Norge, which has been in Helsinki for over a week already.

The king was rehearsing for the sailing competition on Sunday. Photos from Helsingin Sanomat/Leif Rosas.

This wasn't a very good day for the king and his crew.
They are now 7th overall and 3rd in their division after the third day.
Tomorrow is a Lay Day, no sailing.

They are still 7th overall and 3rd in their division after the fourth day.
Tomorrow the king and his crew are fighting about the bronze medal, they can't achieve gold or silver anymore.

LadyFinn thanks for keeping us updated.
On facebook the NRF published a picture with the caption: "Exciting till the end of the World Cup in sailing: The King and his crew in Sira took third in the Sira Cup class for classic 8-meters in Helsinki Saturday."
Congratulations!

Yes, the king had a tough fight with a finnish crew. The king was one point ahead before today. The finnish boat was one place better today and they were in equal points. The king had as best placement a fourth place, and the finns had a fifth place. So the king got the bronze.
A photo from the prize ceremony, I think better photos coming soon.
