Götheborg will attend Donsö Shipping Meet

At the end of August, Götheborg of Sweden will attend Sweden’s largest shipping event, Donsö Shipping Meet (DSM). It’s the first time that the ship will attend the event, and it is also the first time that Götheborg will moor at Donsö in the southern archipelago outside of Gothenburg. 

Götheborg will attend Donsö Shipping Meet

Every other year, delegates from all over the world gather on the island of Donsö, to discuss shipping and shipping-related topics. This year Donsö Shipping Meet has also joined forces with Gothenburg Port Day, making the event even bigger. Götheborg will be one of the center pieces of the event, and the ship will be open to visit for everyone who attends DSM. 

“ The ship is a symbol for both the city of Gothenburg and the port of Gothenburg, and we are very proud and excited that Götheborg will be part of the event”, said Jonas Backman, Chairman at Donsö Shipping Meet. 

For Greencarrier, who owns the ship Götheborg, attending Donsö Ship Meet is an opportunity to show the important connection between modern trade and history.

“ Götheborg makes a very visual and tangible connection to the historical trade that lay the foundation for the Gothenburg that we know today – a trade hub and important international port. I believe that to develop and go forward, it is important to also understand our history”, said Stefan Björk, owner of Götheborg of Sweden and Greencarrier. “We are looking forward to showing the ship and Greencarrier to the attendants at the event.”

The ship will arrive at Donsö the 27th of August to attend the event from 28­–30 August. The 31st of August, the ship will return to Gothenburg. More exact times for when the ship will depart and arrive will be communicated in August.

Remember the sailboat rescue in April last year?
