Would you like to help us with the maintenance of the East Indiaman Götheborg while learning about the construction, maintenance and sailing of a 18th century ship? Then you are warmly welcome as a volunteer during our working weeks. In addition to rig training, you get to practice how to work with ropes and tie knots every day. Every day there is also a lecture or practical training, where you will learn more in-depth knowledge of a subject concerning maintenance or craft on board. If the weather permits, we launch the ships boats and row or sail with them one of the days. Usually there is a theme on the work week, a special area on the ship that needs extra maintenance at the moment.
For those traveling to Gothenburg to attend our working week there is the possibility of sleeping on board the ship. We offer lunch for free every day and work clothes can be borrowed. The working hours are Monday to Friday, from 08:30 to 16:30.
