It was pretty harsh sea when the king went aboard, and the shipmaster Knut Hveding had to adjust their route.
- But I still gave the helm to King Harald, says Hveding to Fredriksstad Avis.
The plan was that the king should try out the skipper chair.
The King was received by the county director Anne Enger when he arrived at Skjærhalden in Hvaler Thursday afternoon. In addition to a tour with the lifeboat stood also a visit to the Outer Hvaler National Park on the royalprogram.
