Sailing leg eight

The Biscayan Adventure

Are you ready for a southbound voyage?

Sail with us from Bremerhaven to Lisbon as a deckhand! This will be the longest passage of all our European legs – and easily the toughest one, too. Naming it the Biscayan Adventure is no exaggeration, for adventurous it will be, just as it will be fun and include some really great sailing.

Sailing here is on many people’s bucket lists. Is it on yours? Signing up for this leg will give you a most varied experience of challenging sailing, beautiful summer days on the Atlantic, and ocean wildlife spotting.

Sailing leg nine

The Strait of Gibraltar – Lisbon to Malaga

Malaga, we’re on our way!

After weighing anchor in Lisbon on 9 September, Götheborg is headed for the Mediterranean with Malaga as our first stop. On the way, we’ll be passing Cadiz, where the original Götheborg and her fellow East Indiamen used to cast anchor to trade Swedish ship building material such as wood, tar, and iron products in exchange for silver, that the Chinese traders wanted as payment for the tea, silk, china wear.

Just after Cadiz, Götheborg will enter the Mediterranean from the west for the very first time. We’ll be sailing through the Strait of Gibraltar, which is a must-do for many sailors. Signing up for The Strait of Gibraltar sailing leg will get you six days of authentic sailing, before slowly cruising into the harbor of sun-drenched Malaga.

Can we promise you dolphins? Well, nature wouldn’t be nature if we could, but it would be quite unlikely if we didn’t get to see them. These waters are where dolphins live and thrive. All in all, The Strait of Gibraltar leg is sure to be an intriguing one. So, a berth aboard Götheborg could be yours. Will you join us?
