Sailing lessons

by LisaGoldner

We are new in Asker and would like sailing lessons for our family (children ages 11, 8, and 7). We can't read or speak Norwegian.

Can you send information about lessons to our e-mail address?

Thank you
Lisa Goldner

Most sailing clubs offer Optimist Dinghy sailing courses for children, but only in group training. You might have a problem finding stand-alone training if that is what you are searching for.

Re: Sailing lessons

Flette-Mette is right, but there are other options, too. There is plenty in the way of sailing including courses for children. If you go down Slemmestad road toward Vollen, past the Bunnpris grocery store (right side) park at Furua Pizza (left side coming from the north)and walk down to the yacht harbour 5 minutes you can see some of the facilities. Still under tarps for the winter, but you do get an impression of what to expect. I was there yesterday to have a look for myself.

Travel Tips for Asker

Trouble with trees?

by Saagar

He, he, probably not. But I have, therefore I have noted the address of the farmer Christian Aaby who cuts and removes trees, and/or sells you firewood, too. So if you are moving here, consider this tip of value, because other similar companies/services have been less than successful...

The revival of the "bunad" folk costume

by Saagar

It is said that in 1900 there were only 4 women in Kristiania (former Oslo) who used the bunad women folk costume. One of them were Hulda Garborg from Asker who was denied access to restaurants in Kristiania because of this. In 1903 she published "Norske Klædebunader" (Norwegian folk Costumes) and thus established the term "bunad" and gave it renewed status. This was linked to the revival of a national and cultural identity, at the time of the end of Swedish/Danesh colonialisation of Norway (1905).
You can find out more about Hulda and her work at her home in Asker, now under protection of Asker Museum. Or you can enjoy the sights of all the bunad folk costumes while visiting Norway during festivals, weddings, celebrations and appreciate this radical, forward lady who brought back this old regional traditional clothing to the limelight.

St. Hans Midsummer Festival - Langåra

by Saagar

St. Hans midsummer celebrations are just a popular midsummer celebration of light nights, beginning of summer holidays for many and simply the arrival of warm summer weather.
There are local community organized festival arrangements including public bonfires , music and food sales etc. Nothing much beyond good companionship, picnics, drinkis, dancing, staying up late and games for the kids. Many Norwegians seem to be conceived during this night...

Langåra's northern side is the key action place for the boat people of Asker. Packed with boats, and people picnic on board or they step on land at Langåra's northern side which has good picnic places, anchorages, shelter from the wind and view to the sunset.

Maundy Thursday "Mussles Day"

by Saagar

For some unbeknownst reason the Maundy Thursday (Easter) is a traditional first mussles collecting day and cooking mussles on the seashore. Lots and lots of people spend the afternoon doing this, wading the shallows and cooking on bonfires. It's especially the communities of Nærsnes, Båtstø, Bjerkås and Slemmestad where this has caught on - but since when? Nobody knows, and for no particular reason.... Of course you can join! And it's free, all based on BYO - and PYO=pick your own. But I would be very surprised if people wouldn't share with you should you bump by emptyhanded.

17th May - national Day - part 2

by Saagar

The main event of the day in Asker is the school children's parades and festivities. As Asker is the host of the crown prince family at Skaugum, the first thing after getting up, hoisting the flags (07:00), remembering those who died for freedom (at "Nei-støtten" in Asker and "Retterstedet" (Execution place) at the 2nd WW Grini Concentration Camp in Bærum), all Asker's schools parade by and is greeted by the Crown prince family at the door of their Skaugum home at 8:10 onwards. Upon arrival back in Asker square, speeches and what not, the school children return to their respective schools about 10 am. By 11 the local schools, kindergardens and other social organisations do their local parades around the community with school brass bands, making a point of conducting special halts at hospitals, homes of the elderly etc. Bystanders, parents and others join the parade on the way and all seem to end up at festivities at the respective schools about 11-12. The speeches of the day are held by pupils, headmaster, parents, all making references to past heroices, our new citizens, the elderly, the constitution and the upcoming games for the children and ice creams... There is the national hymn sung by children voices through screeching loudspeakers, the brass band and the choir do their bits until restlessness overwhelms the assembly and the official stuff is over. Then games for the children organised by parents' committees; lotteries, soft drinks, coffee, ice cream, hot dogs... Everybody relives their childhoods for a while and enjoy the day, and meeting friends, neighbours and colleagues. By 14-14:30 hrs it's all over and families retire home with tired children and the family dinner (much preferred consumed together with visiting relatives) spectacle ensues. Children running around and white stockings getting green knees from tumbling in the grass, the coffe and brandy arrives as lights dim. One year till next time. This is about it...
