Anchors at a museum in Thorsminde for stranded ships. The west coast has claimed the lives of many sailors whose ships stranded there, not least the British ship, St. George, which stranded near Thorsminde Christmas night 1811. Another British ship, the Defence, suffered the same fate the same night at the same place. Between 1300 and 1400 lives were lost. Only 17 survived.
The museum is named after St. George.
