Next summer, you can step aboard cannon sloop Diana, which has been built according to its 1700s role models, and sail the coastal waters of Suomenlinna. Set of on a memorable sea voyage to Suomenlinna’s coastal waters by sailing in a 1700s atmosphere. Check out the offered public and charter sailings for the 2018 season and book your own place on Admiral Chapman’s journey onboard the cannon sloop Diana.
The cannon sloop that belonged to the archipelago fleet was a shallow draft and heavily armed ship, which could be sailed and rowed.

The ship was built at Suomenlinna’s shipyard.
