The Battle of Dynekil 1716

Obscure though it might be to us, but according to the write-up this is one of the most famous battles in Norway's history. Anyway it isn't very often you see tall ships pounding the shore with cannons...well done to all involved. The war was between Denmark/Norway and Sweden - weakened after her defeat at Poltava.

A very good and interesting sea battle, with the most heroic and romantic hero of the time: Tordenskjold.
Here is some photos of the reenactment:
