Prince Frederik makes his watermark

February 22, 2005

VISITING Danish Crown Prince Frederik was yesterday marching with a military tattoo of a different kind.

After enjoying a day's sailing aboard Nanoq, the Prince returned to the Cruising Yacht Club looking refreshed and relaxed in shorts and a T-shirt.

He'd spent several hours putting the Danish boat through its paces around Rushcutters Bay and outside the Heads.

Keen observers spotted one of the Prince's two tattoos -- of a shark -- on his right leg.

The shark tattoo is believed to be the insignia of a Danish elite forces unit.

But the Prince's other tattoo, bearing his nickname Pingo, on his left arm, was not on public display.

Prince Frederik joined the army in 1986, enlisting as a lowly private in the Royal Life Guards instead of being commissioned as an officer.

The Prince will compete in the Farr 40 world titles off Sydney Heads against some of the world's best sailors.

For the championships, and the pre-world regatta which starts on Thursday, he will have a crew of eight on Nanoq (Danish for polar bear).

They include Anders Myralf, a well-known sailor whose brother Stefan steered Nokia to her race record victory in the 1999 Sydney to Hobart.

Princess Mary is due to arrive in Sydney on Thursday.

Shirtless Crown Prince!

On last night's TV news we had extensive coverage of Frederik practicing his yachting, with his shirt off.

Shame I don't have any photos to share.

(ha, ha)

Crown Prince's Strong Peformances!
today's instalment...


Crown Prince Frederik has proved he'll be a contender at next week's Farr 40 world championships, with strong performances off Sydney Heads yesterday.

Sailing his yacht Nanoq with a crew of eight fellow Danes, the Prince raced to two top-15 placings on the opening day of the pre-world championships.

The Prince has won hearts with his friendly disposition and lack of airs in sailing circles since his arrival in Australia and has spent most days training or racing his yacht in preparation for next week's titles.

On Sunday he will attempt to level the score with his wife in a match-racing challenge on Sydney Harbour.

Last night Prince Frederik and eight members of his entourage dined at Hugo's restaurant at Bondi.

He appeared to be in a relaxed mood, joking with his friends before leaving at 10.30pm."

Crown Princess Mary arrives in Sydney in about an hour, so things should start to get interesting.
