The tall ship Goetheborg approaching harbor
Members of the crew on the Swedish replica Eastindiaman Götheborg.
The Götheborg is a reconstruction of the same-named Eastindiaman which run aground while entering Götheborgs port on the 12th September 1745, returning from a mercantile expedition to China.
Between 1986 and 1992 marine archaeologists explored the sunken vessel and from June 1995 until her first sea trial in May 2005 the reconstruction took place.
Now she is one of the largest fullrigged wooden sailing ships in the world, giving place to 80 people on board and meeting international safety requirements for ocean going vessels.
Already six month after her first sea trial she went on a journey to China, coming back two years later in June 2007.
