Set sail from Norway with Trinovante as she sails into the unspoiled Swedish archipelago of Gothenburg.

Experience one of the most spectacular sailing grounds in the world and sail with tall ship Trinovante as she explores from Norway to Sweden. Sailing from Sandefjord, Trinovante will be working her across the Oslo fjord and to the Swedish archipelago of Gothenburg. Expect truly spectacular scenery with plenty of time to explore ashore.

Joining Trinovante in the Sandefjord is the perfect introduction to voyaging through Norway. A modern yet charming seaside town with large forests and numerous sandy beaches. The Vikings lived in the area about 1,000 years ago, and in Sandefjord, their presence is clearly seen in the artefacts and monuments they left behind. This is where the famous Gokstad ship was found, and the area has several other sites and historical landmarks from the Viking era. Sandefjord is also home to Europe’s only museum dedicated to whaling and its history and is well worth a visit.

The voyage will see you cross the magnificent Oslo fjord before sailing across the invisible border to the Swedish coast. Here you will spend your days exploring this unspoiled coastline known as Bohuslän, home to thousands of islands and skerries.

Sail onto discover the beautiful archipelago of Gothenburg. With over 20 islands to discover and explore, this archipelago stretches the Swedish coast like a string of pearls. Classic coloured wooden houses line the shorefronts with seals basking on rocky outlets. Charming traditional Scandinavian villages, stunning beaches and nature reserves are all waiting to be explored.

As with all our sailing holidays, the exact itinerary will depend on the weather and tides will be chosen each day by your skipper to make the best use of the weather conditions. All meals and hot/soft drinks and hire of waterproofs are included in your ticket price.

Trinovante

Guest berths: 8 Rig: Gaff Schooner

Designed and lovingly built by her current owners John and Su for long-distance sailing, Trinovante is a wonderful tall ship inspired by Portuguese Schooner Creoula.  Built-in a small village on the banks of the River Colne in Essex, this beautiful three-masted Schooner was designed to be strong and seaworthy but also be able to carry plenty of sail with a small crew. She is a British registered, three-masted schooner and is UK Marine and Coast Guard Agency coded for category 1.

Trinovante is an absolute joy to sail whether you are an experienced sailor or a complete beginner. Her skippers and crew love welcoming guests aboard and Trinovante is a boat that invites you to get involved. The possibilities for different sail combinations mean that she can be handled to suit her crew and the weather conditions. Her rig is relatively simple for her size which means she is a great boat to learn on and get involved, quickly becoming part of the crew.

Trinovante never sails the same route twice and she covers some 3000 to 4000 sea miles every year. From the wild mountains, fjords and islands of Norway to the medieval seaports of the Netherlands; from the Orkney and Shetland Isles to the bustling centre of Copenhagen. Enjoy unique and varied sailing holiday adventures with a mix of taster weekends, coastal sailing and offshore voyages in some of the most beautiful parts of Europe.

Her Skippers are also her owners who designed and built the boat themselves. Their passion for life on the water, their boat and sharing the experience with their guests is their top priority. They even ensure they make time to have a chat over the phone with every guest that books with them.
