Following Excelsior’s departure from Lowestoft on the 22nd April, she has made it across the North Sea, through the Kiel Canal and up along the coast of Sweden, arriving in gottskär on the evening of 4th May 2017 on her way to Gothenburg, due 7th May.

Below are a few shots courtesy of Peter Taylor Photography, who has kindly shared them with us to show Excelsior in her far away waters and our crew getting her moored up for the evening.

Many thanks goes to Peter for sharing his work, and a call out to anyone who captures Excelsior on her travels, do get in touch, be it via email sailing@excelsiortrust.co.uk or via our face book or twitter pages (links below) and share them.

The crew are looking to picking up their next guests today and setting sail for Oslo on our Penultimate leg of this Baltic adventure, arriving in Oslo on 14th May, it is not too late to nab a late berth for the return to Lowestoft leaving Oslo on 15th. Get in touch ASAP if you want to join the adventure!
