DEPARTURE!!
100 000 spectators and a lot of pleasure boats came to the harbour of Gothenburg to send Götheborg away on her 1 year long journey to China. Elaine and I hope to meet her in Guangzhou in June 2006 when she enters the Pearl River.




Stena Line had a special departure to follow the ship




The embankments were filled with spectators


Airplanes and helicopters circled the sky






Finally she leaves in a porridge of pleasure boats




At Älvsborgs fortress you could only get a glimse of her masts in the armada


Probably one of the few spectators with family at the destination port of Guangzhou
