Spend time at the Beach in Sundsvika


Several ships have met their final fate in Leka waters. Most famous is the French privateer L`enfant de La Patrie, which sank the night of 17 February 1798. The French corvette, a large sailing ship with 18 guns and a crew of 230, had sailed from Dunkirk in January. They hit a terrible blizzard, and after a strenuous voyage the ship stranded in Gutvik. Most of the crew were rescued ashore, and they marched over 30 mil to Trondheim in harsh winter conditions. ‘Kapermarsjen’ (The march of the Privateers) is a long distance walk in memory of this event. Organised annually since 1988. The marked ‘Kaper trail’ go past the place where the privateer wrecked, Raudhammaren. A plaque has been set up in remembrance.
