Heading out again

Last time Götheborg sailed to Asia was in October 2005. Thousand of people watched from shore as she weighed anchor and set sail, and hundreds of boats followed her out of the harbour. A unique experience for everyone following her voyage and the crew on board. Now it's time again!
