How did I know Götheborg is at SAIL Amsterdam?

August 19, 2010

It was the my Swedish ex-crewmates who got me onto facebook in late 2006/early 2007, so its no surprise that the best medium for getting news about the ship is through the official facebook page. They do provide English updates after ex-guest crew like myself grumbled a bit!

Well, that’s how I heard that two million will watch Swedish ship Götheborg lead a parade of 150 tall ships , 6,000 boats @ SAIL Amsterdam 2010. Told travelling friends to head that way!

He said,

” For two weeks I have been anxious as a little boy to finally board the ship. I am not a sailor at all, but a chance to be like Jack Sparrow is one that should be taken.”

Don’t expect too many posts though. There is sailing to do!
