Poul Forum Sørensen from Bornholm reports: In Bornholm we are working all weekdays building our replica of "Ota", the first decked fishing boat in Bornholm from 1866. Other old bornholmian wooden boats are being restored these days. The doors are open all days, and a visitors are coming nearly every day.TV and newspapers are following our work. Our website will be changed these days, but normally a web-cam following the work can be watched in the daytime.  


26 people from Hiiumaa and 14 from Saaremaa LEADER Action Groups (LAG) took a study trip to Rügen (Germany) on the 6-11th of September. The aim of the visit was to exchange experience, to get knowledge on local LEADER projects in Rügen and to meet people. Of special interest were projects on local food and local product, energy and management of harbours.

 “During 3 days of stay in Rügen we saw interesting developments,” said the Mayor of Kärdla Georg Linkov, a member of the delegation. “As Kärdla starts to build the harbour just now, it was very interesting to learn how harbours are managed in Rügen and how a harbour can help to increase the number of jobs in the town.”
