The Lynæs dinghy Afrodite is a clinker-built fishing boat with pond and oars. But where sjægt is long and slim is Lynæs dinghy rounder and spacious. And where sjægt sailing in the water, sailing Lynæs dinghy on the water.
The Lynæs dinghy Afrodite is a clinker-built fishing boat with well and oars. It is a round and spacious boat. And where other boats sail in the water, a Lynæs dinghy sails on the water.
The dinghy is inspired by Norwegian boat traditions, as the Danish sailor Ole Jensen (born 1793) founded acquaintance with the boat type during a winter on Listerlandet in Norge. As Ole Jensen returned home, he started a shipyard in Frederikssund, where he built boats that were inspired by Norwegian traditions. Afrodite strains from the mid 1800s, where it originally was used to fishing in Limfjorden - primarily in Isefiord, Holbæk Fjord, Lammmefjorden and Roskilde Fjord. The Lynæs dinghy quickly became famous for its acquisitiveness and sailing ability, resulting in the slightly curious situation that the dinghy formed basis for the birth of the considerably larger and very seaworthy Lynæs boat a fishing vessel designed for outright fishing on sea. Afrodite is built like a regular vessel. Afrodite have had a past as a pleasure boat in Charlottenlund and later on Albuen on Lolland before it ended at Ertebølleruten in Limfjorden. Afrodite represents more leisure boating in the fjord than any real Limfjord tradition.
