Ship ahoy sailing trawler enthusiasts!


SUNBEAM turns 100 years old! This grand old lady is built in Lowestoft, England 1905. Where then, to celebrate, if not as close as possible to the dockyard where she was built.  With this as inspiration, the exciting idea of sailing from her home harbor in Stockholm, Sweden , to the British Isles, has taken form.
After the 100th aniversary celebrations we set sail again and head off soth and westward through the English Channel to Brixham. We will be visiting many harbors along the coast and will take the opportunity to call in to harbour of Brixham, the English Sailing Trawler metropolis which currently, proudly harbours 5 sailing trawlers.
After a few days in the Brixham area sails up again and we sail northeastward through the Channel into the North Sea heading for Gothenburg. We´ll have the options to visit the West Frisian Islands, Helgoland and several Danish ports. Also we will have a wonderful cruise through the Baltic Sea archipelagoes back to Stockholm.
