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?

Sailing leg ten
The Riviera Run – Malaga to Nice
Another Side of France
It’s time for the Riviera Run!
Shouldn’t an expedition like ours visit France? Of course! We saved our French stop for the Mediterranean, leaving Malaga 20 September with all sails set for the French Riviera. Fifteen years ago, Götheborg visited Nice for the first time, on the way back from Asia. This time we’re eastbound and still just getting started. As always, we have a need for capable deckhands.
As our Asia Expedition 2022/2023 continues with the Riviera Run, we’ll be sailing either east of the Balearic Islands, or west past the Spanish coastline. It’s bound to be a unique experience, getting to spend a week on a ship like Götheborg in the late summer, slowly approaching the southern French coast.
The turquoise water, the sun and the dolphins all contribute to making this leg spectacular. If this sounds as irresistible to you as it does to us, then we just might have a match. And then you should hurry and try to lay your hands on one of the openings we have for deckhands, experienced or not. Looking forward!
