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.
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.
