We have arrived in London, and we were greeted with style by the Londoners! Passing Tower Bridge at 08:30 in the morning, thousands of onlookers were lining the quaysides to see the ship. We are now moored at Thames Quay in the South Dock in Canary Wharf, and will be open to visitors during the stopover.

Sail with us in the Mediterranean
As the stopovers are announced, applications to sail along as a deckhand on the four sailing legs are also opened up. Anyone interested in sailing along for the adventure and to learn how to sail an 18th century ship is welcome to apply. No sailing experience is required, but applicants need to be over 18 years old and physically able to climb and work in the rig.
We are now headed for London, after four sunny and warm days in the Norwegian capital Oslo. Thank you Oslo for hosting us for a few days, and thank you to everyone who came and visited us. Oslo is the last stop in the Nordic countries before we head south on our great Asia Expedition 2022/2023.
We have arrived in Oslo, and are now moored at Vippetangen near Akershus Fortress. We are here until Sunday 31 July, and are open to visitors Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We look forward to greeting you on board!
