Norwegian Air and SAS
Wideroe for internal flights within Norway.

Google Flights is an easy way to do flight research on availability and prices but does not seem to list Norwegian Air which often has the cheapest flights.
The Værnes Airport Alesund is served by frequent busses. Journey time is 20 minutes to the centre of town. Those used to big UK airports should find the relatively small Alesund airport a relaxing experience.

The exact location of Trinovante is finalised only on arrival in port. Assuming we have internet coverage we then email joining crew and update the Google Map below. This map gives you enough information to plan your travel and familiarise yourself with the area but remember for many reasons we may be on a different pontoon or quay on the day. You can always phone us to check on the day.
You can also follow Trinovante on AIS which will give an accurate location of our position in port. Vessel Finder is just one web site that provides free AIS ship tracking. Many of our crew now use AIS apps on their smart phones to find us.
We do our very best to provide accurate travel information on this page but it is not guaranteed to be correct or up to date.

You are solely responsible for arranging your own travel to and from Trinovante. SchoonerSail accepts no responsibility for the use of travel information on this web site.
If you find any errors in this travel information or have a tip to contribute that would be useful for your fellow crew we would be delighted if you let us know.
