Gotheborg III in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, in March 2006

"Every morning they bussed in kids from just about every school in PE, my daughter got to go twice, it was fascinating for the kids, the ship was open to the general public in the afternoons. I never went on board, but took overseas visitors to see her and they went on. The ship also fired the starting gun for 'the Ironman competition'". Dayle Coombe
