About Us

The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) is a registered charity whose mission is to promote the integration of people of all physical abilities through the challenge and adventure of tall ship sailing aboard two very special ships, Lord Nelson and Tenacious.

We offer both able-bodied and disabled people holidays where you get the chance to experience working together in a fantastic environment. We also find a number of people take the opportunity to go on one of our tall ship sailing adventures by themselves – making a JST voyage a great singles’ adventure holiday.

How we help

The Jubilee Sailing Trust’s aim is to integrate men and women of all abilities through the challenge and adventure of Tall Ship Sailing. We want to break down barriers and correct misconceptions around disability. We allow people to challenge their own perceptions and prejudices and our voyages enable people to push the boundaries and open themselves up to new opportunities.

We conduct many surveys to find out how the voyage crew participants felt before and after they have sailed with us. To see the results please click here.
