ASIA EXPEDITION 2022/2023

Thank you, and farewell Stockholm

As we set sail from Stockholm, the long rivalry between the second city Göteborg and the capital lays buried, as the Ship Götheborg was given pride of place at Skeppsbrokajen 105 by Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s Old Town. 

Thank you, and farewell Stockholm

Thank you Stockholm! We had a tremendous few days with beautiful weather only punctuated by a few showers. When national TV and Radio turned up, journalists were not only invited onto the ship but also to climb the rigging, where expedition Director, Kristoffer Bennis, was interviewed about Götheborg’s voyage around Europe and Asia. Swedish Radio also stayed onboard as we cast off and set sail for Copenhagen, Denmark. 

During our stay in Stockholm several ambassadors visited us onboard to talk about Swedish trade relations and new partnerships.  We were happy to see so many other visitors who had made a special trip just to board and view the ship. We also got a beautiful 1800s wig (and makeup) from our friend Julia at Smink och Perukmakarn.

As we cast off rain started dissipating, and we sailed with the sound of the gun salut from the quay. Next stop, Copenhagen, Denmark!

Watch the video from the third leg!

Sailing leg 3 of the Asia Expedition 2022/2023 went from Helsinki to Stockholm. A sailing leg that included both sunny days and thunderstorms, swim stops, great sailing and some quiet times of playing music on deck. Before the stopover in Stockholm, Götheborg also went into Beckholmen dry dock in Stockholm for a few days – a job that was better done close to home with the right people and knowledge easily accessible.

The beautiful violin music in the video is composed and played by Hanna Lönnqvist.

Visit us in Barcelona until March 2023

On October 27, Götheborg of Sweden arrived to Barcelona and moored at one of the top locations in the city harbour: Port Vell/Rambla de Mar. The first weekend in Barcelona was the official stopover, with full crew, and the ship fully rigged. We want to thank Barcelona for the very warm welcome!
