Finding The Ship In Port
Google Map (below)
The exact location of Trinovante is finalised only on arrival in port. We then email the joining crew with position details and update the Google Map below. The map below gives you enough information to plan your travel and familiarise yourself with the area but remember we may be on a different pontoon or quay on the day. Remember you can always phone us to check.
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.
