We're really excited about the great interest in Götheborg! We get a lot of questions about the route and where she can be seen while sailing to Stockholm. The route is not set, and will be dependent on weather and wind, as the purpose for sailing is to test the ship. However, it's possible to follow the ship on the link in the post and see her current position.
Today at 4pm (16:00), the ship Götheborg leaves quay in Gothenburg to sail to Stockholm. The ship will fire a gun salute about ten minutes after leaving quay. It’s the first time in six years that the ship is sailing, and the first step on the large expedition to Asia that the ship will go on in 2022.
The ship Götheborg, that was set to leave for Stockholm tomorrow, 15 August, will be pushed back one day, to Monday 16 August. During the day on Saturday, the spritsail yard under the bowsprit, broke on the ship Götheborg. Work is now under way to replace the yard with a spare yard.
