Cannon Sloop Diana’s public sailings are historical cannon sloop cruises amidst the fortress islands of Suomenlinna. The voyage is led by no other than the most accomplished Admiral Chapman, who takes the passengers through times in an entertaining fashion, introducing them to the famous fortress and life in the navy. The participants have the opportunity to assist the crew in raising and lowering the sails, and the most courageous ones can join forces with their fellow traveller and try rowing with the oars. The sailing voyage offers fascinating history and combines elements of drama tour, relaxed outdoor activity and sightseeing boat cruise. Welcome aboard!.
