Nice 29 September – 6 October, 2022 

In the beginning of September, Götheborg is coming to Nice, France. Come and visit the ship in the city harbor! We will continuously update this page with more information to come. Stay tuned.

Sail with us to Nice

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 Nice below. 

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!

Sailing leg eleven

The Maltese Connection – Nice to Valletta

Heading South Once Again!
The Maltese Connection coming up

Götheborg will be leaving Nice on 6 October. Destination this time? Valletta, the smallest capital in the European Union. More importantly, the city is a World Heritage site and is often referred to as an open-air museum of, among other things, Baroque architecture.

This leg of our expedition, therefore, should be of certain interest to those who love not only to sail in the beautiful early Mediterranean autumn, but also have a thing for the wings of history. If that sounds like you, you may well be one of the deckhands we are looking for.

The Maltese Connection will see Götheborg sail past Corsica and Sardinia, before passing between Tunisia and Sicily. Upon arrival in Valletta, we will be warmly welcomed. It’s more than likely we will have experienced dolphins along the way to Götheborg’s southernmost destination during 2022.
