Indeed, the NORGE has been spotted carrying HM's 8 metre yacht Sira, to take part in the races being run out of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club on Toronto Islands. I shall act as intrepid reporter and see if I can score a picture; here is already a sighting from the Cornwall news!

After two races on the first day (Monday), Sira is in 7th place and number 2 among the classic boats (built before 1968).

I did not see Sira race but I was able to locate and take pictures of NORGE. I have airdropped them to my new Macbook air but have no clue how to insert them here; if there are more computer literate persons than me on this forum, please let me know how to share the photos i took of NORGE, that is moored about 5 minutes from my house!

Here is NORGE moored just east of Toronto's Sugar Beach. You will note that Sira is gone off to sail in the 8 metre world championships, her space now filled with an enclosure open to the southward view of Toronto Island and the Royal Canadian Yacht Club hosting the week's races.

You are quite welcome, the photo was indeed wonder-ful as I had never uploaded to this particular site but with some trial, error and patience, it worked! I was interested to read about Queen Sonia as artist; I had forgotten she also shares this talent with her Danish colleague! If you read the National Post article 'why is the king of Norway sleeping at the foot of Sherbourne street' posted above, His Majesty is quoted expressing great admiration for his wife's beauty, intelligence and humour

Haha gerry, the double meaning of wunderful

Yes Queen Sonja is quite involved in art.
Yesterday, she attended the opening of the National Annual Autumn Exhibition, September 10, 2016. There she met among others the winner of this year's Autumn Exhibition Award.

How nice that they still have and use the royal ship. Nice that it made its way across the Atlantic to Canada

Speaking to some 1,500 guests at a garden party outside the Royal Palace, King Harald delivered a message of tolerance that has struck a nerve amongst Norwegians who have witnessed intense debates about immigration in their country.

[...]

“Norwegians come from the north of the country, from the middle, from the south and all the other regions. Norwegians are also immigrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Poland, Sweden, Somalia and Syria,” the king said.

“Norwegians are girls who love girls. Boys who love boys. And boys and girls who love each other,” King Harald said.

“Norwegians believe in God, Allah, everything and nothing,” he added.

And proving that the 79-year-old (or his speech writer) still has his finger on Norway’s cultural pulse, he also name-dropped a diverse group of Norwegian musicians.

“Norwegians like Grieg, Kygo, Hellbilles and Kari Bremnes,” he said to chuckles.

“In other words, Norway is you. Norway is us,” King Harald said.

Video of the speech went absolutely viral. A clip on broadcaster NRK’s Facebook page has been viewed over two million times and garnered thousands of supportive comments.

The clip has 3K likes and 2K dislikes on YouTube.
