Spring is in the air, and here is our first sign!

Volunteer week to remove the ship's winter cover

Spring is in the air and summer is not as far away as it used to be. This means, that we now need to remove the ship’s winter cover. Join us during a week in April and see the spring transformation for yourself!

Volunteer week to remove the ship's winter cover

We need 10 volunteers on the 22nd to 26th of April to help us to remove the ship’s winter cover. It is a work that require lots of hands but in the end, we can finally stand on deck and view the river again. As usual, lunch and fika are included, but not breakfast and dinner!

When here, you need to make your own breakfast and dinner but can use the kitchen. You can sleep on board if you’d like but need to bring bed linen, towels, toiletries, warm clothes to have underneath the work clothes since we are going to be outside all days. We provide work pants and bussarong/coveralls/rainwear. Bring shoes you are not afraid of getting dirty!

We also provide smell of tar, smiles and if we are lucky, some sunshine as well!

National day and reopening of the Ships hall and brand-new Café!

01 June 2024

On June 6, it's happening! There aren't many places on Hisingen to celebrate the Swedish National Day. This year, we're making a big deal out of it by celebrating National Day with both a salute and a flag ceremony. We're combining this with the inauguration of our newly renovated Ship’s Hall and the brand-new café! Why not enjoy a brewed coffee and an ice cream with us?

Remember the sailboat rescue in April last year?

07 May 2024

On the 25th of April, off the coast of France just after 4pm, a distress call was sent by the MRCC regarding a sailing vessel that had lost its rudder and was drifting. Being the closest ship to the sailing boat, Götheborg answered the call.
