A report on the 'King who wants to be only sailer and tourist'. Unfortunately German only. Google translation wouldn't work for this website.

Basically what it emphasises the down-to-earth-approach of King Harald V. Someone who doesn't like to be photographed during meals. You are not allowed to come too close, but he waved to fellow sailers with the words 'Go, go' when they passed him. He enjoys a glass of wine in the evening and uses a small boat in the morning to go to the marina.

Very good for King Harald.

His and the crew of "Sira" sailed into third place in their class and fifth place total in the World Cup for 8-meter on Saturday.

Thanks eya!

English article about it: Third place to King Harald in the World Cup for 8 meter racing yachts - Norway Today

From me: As one can read in the two last posts in the below thread, the King's back/leg pains is becoming more and more visible, and the media has for the first time started to pay attention to it: Annual County Visits

But as TV2's royal expert Kjell Arne Totland said on TV2 News Channel the other day, that he's still out and sailing shows that he is in pretty good health (despite his frailty).
