Summary[edit]

Description
English: Faroese stamp with Erik Christensens photo from Lighthouse Akraberg, Suðuroy, Faroe Islands
In 1909 the Lighthouse Service built the iconic Akraberg lighthouse on the southern tip of Suðuroy. The waters south of Sumba are notorious for their unpredictability. Here lies a series of rocky skerries below and above sea level, and the meeting of currents, together with wind and weather, create dangerous conditions for boats and ships. The situation became more hazardous in 1884 when the high cliff "Munkurin" on the southernmost rock, Sumbiarsteinur, crashed into the sea and the seafarers lost the fixed landmark of the rocks.
