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 when you arrive. You can always phone us on the day 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 smart phones to find us.
