At the date of April 10, the new Swedish consortium EastIndiaTrade and their ship Götheborg/Gothenborg got the announcement from their Chinese partners to postpone their departure to China. Reason is a request due to the economical/political situation(climate) in China, where the authorities dampen activities such as festivities, events, representations and more.... Furthermore, it is due to the increased import trade restrictions. This has created a situation which makes it hard to prepare a pompous and festive reception of the ship Götheborg/Gothenburg for their arrival in China. There upon there will be even harder to prepare for future stops in other Chinese cities which was planned for the 2015/2016 trip. The consequences of this request, results that the departure of Götheborg/Gothenburg to China on May 4, 2014 wont happen. Source: Sjöfartsnyheter

Here is an interesting link to an instructional video about sailing a three masted square rigged vessel. Lots of insightful information that I think helps understand rigging and the function of all the lines and sails. Really insightful for gaining an understanding of the why and the how. Plus its just a neat video. Hope its not a re-post.
