High summer sailing and exploring in the Orkney Islands
Sky Scanner has quite flexible search options.
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.
This information is from a Trinovante sailor who lives in Gothenburg.
To get from Landvetter Airport there is a bus called the Airport Bus, according to the web site it goes every 20 mins, journey time is 30 mins cost 99 SEK. It will take you to “Nils Erikssonplatsen” which is the end of the line. It is also close to the Railway Station.
From there you walk (10 min) to “Lilla Bommen”. Here you find a harbour ferry called ‘Älvsnabben Line no 285’.
For 30SEK this ferry will take you directly to Eriksber where you will find Trinovante.
We have put the whole route into the Google map on this page. There are notes if you click on the items. notes
This is the Swedish Rail Network Site.
There are currently no ferries from the UK to Sweden.
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. This map 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. You can always phone us to check.
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.
