First stopover: Sète, France

Sète, 23–27 March

Sète in France will be the first stopover on the European Tour 2023, before Götheborg heads towards it's home port Gothenburg, for the grand finale of this year's sailing. Götheborg will leave Barcelona 20 March 2023, and after only a short sail trip will reach Sète on Friday 23 March. Four more stopovers are planned between Sète and Gothenburg, all to be announced shortly.

Götheborg will join the 400-year celebration in Gothenburg

Arriving right at the beginning of June, Götheborg of Sweden will play an important role in the celebration of the city of Gothenburg’s celebration of its 400-year anniversary in June 2023. The Swedish East India Company and its ships played a central role in the development and history of the city of Gothenburg, and Götheborg of Sweden is a symbol of the era that laid the foundation of what Gothenburg is today. We are therefore delighted to play an important role in the great celebrations.

An opportunity to sail for free

We now offer a unique opportunity to sail for free on board the Götheborg during the first six weeks of this year’s sailing adventure. Sign on in Barcelona mid-March and sign off in the Brittany/Normandie area right at the end of April. We promise a great sailing adventure in the Mediterranean, through the Straits of Gibraltar, along the coast of Portugal and across the Bay of Biscay. This is a bucket list sailing adventure that you don’t want to miss!
