Departure Gothenburg

On Saturday 30 June at noon, the Swedish Ship Götheborg will cast off from her home port at Pier Four, Eriksberg in Gothenburg. It will finally be time for this summer’s tour and several weeks on the high seas.

Exciting weeks packed with adventure await the permanent crew and the almost 200 inexperienced deckhands, who have received the good news that they have been accepted into the crew. The two days prior to departure the first team will arrive, and they will sail between Gothenburg and Den Helder in the Netherlands. They will be busy days full of preparation ahead of the voyage.

On Saturday 30 June the atmosphere will reach a peak, and we are of course hoping for fine summer weather in Gothenburg. Bring your family and friends down to Pier Four at Eriksberg, and help wave farewell to the ship and her expectant crew as once again they set sail for the great seas. At noon, Gothenburg personality Ove Andersson will kick off the departure ceremony, shortly followed by the traditional gun salute in Gothenburg harbour.
