Frederik was also in the News tonight. As you maybe remember did Frederik and Mary sailed against each other a few days before their wedding, where Mary won. Today Frederik and his crew lost to Nicolai Sehested (one of the world's very best sailors - he is also an Olympic participant) Before the race was Frederik asked who he would prefer to lose to - his wife or Sehested? After a big laugh Frederik said "You know, it's always hard to lose to your wife" (picture 20+21 in the gallery from Berlingske)

Frederik is no longer a member of ISAF Events Committee. He was a member for 8 years until the end of 2012.

Frederik is currently participating in the Farr 40 World Championships in Newport, RI.

Here are some pics I found on Facebook, from August 25, Farr 40 Pre World Championship. The championships begins today until Aug 30th.

I'm just curious: how would he get involved in something like this? I mean sailing for a U.S. team. It seems a very competitive/demanding race. I imagine there will be lots of other (maybe more experienced/competent) athletes that could have done it. I'm not being critical, just curious!

Also, when does he sleep, recoup??...four kids, an Ironman race and the next day he is flying to San Francisco. I would be soooo tired...

He was not sailing for a U.S team. He was just invited aboard for a short ride when he was in San Francisco.
He is sailing with his team Nanoq at the Farr 40 worlds in NY at the moment. In his own boat.

Added: The caption to the photo of Frederik visiting the U.S team seems to be wrong: He is not
at America's Cup in SF 19th-30th.

I had place an article and pictures under his current events thread, since he wasn't competing, just invited. I think my post is #131. there is also a pic of him with the America's trophy.

He is now in Newport, Rhode Island competing with his team and boat Nanoq in the Farr 40 World Championships. i think it ends Tomorrow

This picture was from yesterday, it seems Nanoq had some trouble with the sails

Thanks for clarifying Nordic! I was confused...

The Farr 40 ends tomorrow but I think the competitive part has finished. Here are the results. Nanoq placed 7 out of 15. http://www.yachtscoring.com/event_re...lass=Farr%2040

A note from BB informs us that Frederik and his crew will take a break from competing.
Lene Balleby is quoted for saying: "It's a boating class (Farr 40) that require a lot af time and a lot of training in order to remain at the top. that's why the Crown Prince stop sailing Farr 40 and he will ake a break for an undetermined period of time".

The boat Nanoq will be put up for sale.

That means Polyesco, who has otherwise kept us up to date when Frederik has been sailing, has lost her reporting gig.

LOL I was just getting familiar with the whole sailing world

Did Frederik own the Nanoq boat himself? how long has he had it?

I'm not surprised. Last week was the first time in three years that Frederik and his team have sailed together. Meanwhile in these three years some cute twins arrived in the family and I guess it's one of the main reasons. But sure also because Frederik (and Mary too, for that matter) gets more and more royal tasks for every year now. The time simply isn't there any longer. But I'm pretty sure that he will resume in time... when the children are older and the family doesn't need so much time. As we see with Prince Henrik.
