Cannon Sloop Diana’s Public Sailings in summer 2019

Cannon sloop Diana is a wooden ship built in Suomenlinna shipyard. Cannon sloop Diana is based on the drawings prepared by Ship Architect Fredrik Henrik af Chapman and old document sources of the Swedish fleet’s drawings office.

During the sailing tours we go back in time to the 1790s. The participants will experience a unique sea voyage with an old vessel and a sense of history.

Timos for Public Sailings

During 26.6-3.8. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 15.30 and on 10.8., 17.8., 24.8. and 31.8. at 15.30.

During Diana’s sailings you will see Suomenlinna from the sea and hear about the fascinating history of the archipelago fleet. The public can choose to assist in raising and lowering the sails, and a few brave ones can join in with the rowing. The journey is enlivened by Admiral Chapman and his crew.

Duration and point of departure

The duration of the sailing or rowing tour is approximately 1 hour 45 minutes. Sailings depart from Suomenlinna’s Tykistölahti Pier. You can reach Suomenlinna on JT-Line’s water bus or HSL’s ferry from the Market Square (the boat trip is not included in the ticket price).

Please note

Diana is an open boat, so dressing according to weather conditions is important. Due to the wind, it may be cold at sea even on a warm day. It is good to have a warm and relaxed casual outfit, as well as flat shoes, with you. In case of rain, it is good to bring a raincoat. It is also worth taking a bottle of water with you. Children can participate only whit an adult.
