Overview

On the western side of the island of Rindarøy in the municipality of Aukra stands the "Rokta" monument by Nicolaus Wiederberg. This stone sculpture is a memorial to the cargo vessel "Rokta", wrecked off the Galleskjæra rocks in April 1938. The lifeboat "Christian Bugge" had a radio on board and the rescue operations were transmitted direct. Half of the 12-man crew were saved. Arnulf Øverland immortalised the rescue in his poem "The fishermen from Hustadvika".
