The exact location of Trinovante is finalised only on arrival in port. Assuming we have internet coverage, we then email the joining crew and update the Google Map below. In Bergen, we may be on either side of the dock. 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.
Find Trinovante Using AIS
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 smartphones to find us.
