"In sweden, especially province Hälsingland and Dalarna we have juge old
traditional church boats which was used when going to church a long time
ago, year 1800-1900.
Have you seen any similar when you have travelled around the world ? Do you
have any good sites to look into? If you go and look in
and then go into Borlänge Roddklubb you see what kind of boats I mean.
Today we have competitions like Viking row competition (27 km) and other
shorter distances between provinces. If you have anything to tell please
contact me." KJ from Dellarnas Kyrkbåtsroddare.
