The Kalmer Nyckel was waiting in Gothenburg for the ship Charitas, which arrived from Stockholm about the beginning of June. The cargo and provisions were brought on board the two ships. It is probable the Kalmer Nyckel carried the majority of the settlers and the animals and farming implements were loaded into the Charitas for the voyage to New Sweden.
The colonists were nearly all Finns, most of whom had their families with them. The majority of the sailors and soldiers were Swedes and Finns, but the officers, with one or two exceptions, were Dutchmen. The voyage over the ocean was stormy and two colonists and some cattle died and had to be thrown overboard.
