Barcelona 27 October 2022 – March, 2023

In the end of October, Götheborg is coming to Barcelona, Spain, for her winter stay. Come and visit her in the city harbor! We will continuously update this page with more information to come. Stay tuned.

Sail with us to Barcelona

You can be part of the unique adventure of sailing as a deckhand on board Götheborg. You will experience life on board a 18th century ship and make friends for life. As a deckhand you sail together with the professional crew, are not required to have any sailing experience and will get training on board. Read more about the sailing leg to Barcelona below. 

Sailing leg twelve

The Autumnal Passage – Valletta to Barcelona

Barcelona Bound

It makes absolute sense to make beautiful Barcelona our next stop after Valletta, both cities being well-known for their extraordinary architecture. This is actually the last leg before our winter break in Barcelona and, in other words, the last chance for deckhands to get on board Götheborg while it’s still 2022.

For the Autumnal Passage to Catalonia, we will be heading west again. On our way through the Mediterranean, we will pass an array of countries and islands. These are once again dolphin waters, and unlike Northern Europe in late autumn, October should still be nice and warm, but can also serve up sailing in strong winds. Entering the port of Barcelona is probably the best way to arrive in the city. Doing it on board Götheborg makes it even more unique.

We’ll be leaving Valletta on 18 October. So, are you up for a week or so of some old-school sailing? We know we are, and we have openings for a number of deckhands to join us, beginners and more experienced ones alike.

Days sailing: 9 days
Days in port: 5 days

Sign on: Valletta, 17 October 2022
