We have arrived in London, and we were greeted with style by the Londoners! Passing Tower Bridge at 08:30 in the morning, thousands of onlookers were lining the quaysides to see the ship. We are now moored at Thames Quay in the South Dock in Canary Wharf, and will be open to visitors during the stopover.
Valletta 14 – 18 October, 2022
Middle of October, Götheborg is coming to Valletta, Malta. Come visit us!
Sail with us to Valletta
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 Valletta below.
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.

Sailing leg twelve
The Autumnal Passage – Valletta to Barcelona
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.
