Kappróðrarbátar, Faroese Row Boats for Boat Races

Kappróðrarbátur is the Faroese word for the wooden Faroese row boats, which are used in the annual boat races around the islands in June and July. The different categories of boats are: 5-mannafar, 6-mannafar, 8-mannafar and 10-mannafar. These boats have six, eight, and ten rowers plus coxswain. The difference between 5-mannafar and 6-mannafar is not the number of rowers but the lenght of the boat. In the Faroe Islands they measure the boats in Danish feet, thumbs and "alin". A 5-mannafar is 21 Danish feet long, a 6-mannafar is 22 feet long, a 8-mannafar is 24 feet long, a 10-mannafar is 26 DK feet long. One Danish foot is ca. 31.5 cm.). Each rowing club has their own colours and other characteristics. Føroyskt: Føroyskir kappróðrarbátar, bólkað eftir kappróðrafeløgunum.
