Fri fart

Well, It’s not as bad as the title might imply. And it doesn’t smell that bad either. The title is in swedish and translated verbatim you get “free speed”, or probably better “no speed limit”.

“Fri fart” is an annual event, 10th year in a row, where owners of old speed boats get a chance to drive fast and show off the shiny varnish and gelcoat for a mesmerized audience. This year the event was held at Kinda Kanal in the middle of Linköping. I visited the event together with thousands of spectators. I have put up a gallery of photos from a sunny Saturday at Kinda Canal in Linköping with speed, engine noise, two-stroke smoke, gloss varnish, old gelcoat and lots of flair.
