Possibility to sail a Kon-Tiki copy....

Hi,

  There is currently a film based on the Thor Heyerdahls Kon-Tiki expedition being made, and as part of the production, they made a copy of the Kon-Tiki raft. This summer they're going to sail it along the coast of Norway, and are giving the public an oppertunity to join in for the ride for shorter stretches (they sail from 14:00 to 20:00 each day). Hopefully something Wharram sailors will enjoy.

  If you can read Norwegian, there is an article about it here. http://www.vg.no/film/artikkel.php?artid=10072617 and a google translated version here http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vg.no%2Ffilm%2Fartikkel.php%3Fartid%3D10072617&act=url

  Registration is through the Kon-Tiki museum's homepage http://www.kon-tiki.no/seilasen/index.php

Cheers,
