is a small town on the West coast of Jylland based on a former
fishing village. The vessels had to be hauled onto the beach as there is
no harbour. Still today this method is in use by a handful of boats.
The photo shows the beach and the
landing for the boats in the background.
The landing stage
is protected by a constructed pier. Heavy weather on this location, in
general starts with the wind turning left to a Southerly direction. The
fishing vessels this way had time to return home and haul their boats
onto the shore.
Those who did not make it in time would have to try and ride out the bad
weather hove to at sea, or head for the larger sea ports in the area.
Before the sea ports were constructed, some 75 years ago, it could well
be a matter of life and death to read the weather right.
