TNS454 06/12/15 There is not too much to report other than Eric the Egret has now made his departure. Let’s hope he finds his way home. I believe he left on a full stomach. Captain held a meeting for us all this morning mainly outlining one or two changes with regard to ‘watches’. We were all in agreement. He […]

TNS454 05/12/15 We are now on day 30 on this epic journey and under sail. Dependant on wind conditions we may have to resort to motoring in the coming days; the wind has been dropping but still blows in the right direction. The awaited Quiz event took place last night. Close call and the winning team was Rough Tooted […]

TNS454 04/12/15 It’s Friday and we are now on the Dog Watch 4-6 p.m.  Richard’s best team are adamant that we will reach the 3,000 milestone during this late afternoon. Also, I forgot to mention yesterday that we had a new arrival on board i.e. Eric the Egret.  It would seem that he has made himself at home […]

TNS454 03/12/15  I can report that, overnight,  Dr James has taken up a new profession i.e. turning his hand to changing the style of his current footwear as the Captain had reprimanded him for wearing sandals whilst on his watch. I can report that he now has the appropriate footwear. It is also young Sami’s 25th Birthday today and, […]

TNS454 01/12/15 “Hey Over here! Hey I’m over here! Look at me!” shouted the Minke whale as he jumped out of the water trying to catch the attention of the people aboard the sailing ship. “Look how high I can jump!” he called leaping ever higher from the water to show the sailing ships crew his white underbelly. I […]

TNS454 30/11/15 Today seems to be a day for those with a head for heights and in some cases those that don’t. A stream of people have been seen going up and down both masts seeking to “touch the button”. Some of those ascending do so for noble causes such as, Sophie, ably supported by Clare. Who is […]

TNS454 30/11/15 Marine Wildlife- a Voyage of Discovery Ruth is a Wildlife Officer for ORCA, a conservation charity, which aims to protect whales and dolphins, and educates, inspires and motivates others. We are very fortunate to have her on board with us, with her extensive knowledge of the marine life that inhabits the ocean on which we sail. She […]

TNS454 29/11/15 A new faction has formed aboard the good ship Tenacious in the last 24 hours. They call themselves the Baggy Wrinklers and they seek to make life better aboard by making baggy wrinkles for the areas that require them. They plan to usurp the tyrannical despots of the spotted whalers and the shanty warblers as masters of […]

TNS454 28/11/15 Hello good people and followers of the JST blog. Once more we write to you with what seems like nothing to say and yet so much to type. We shall start with a public service announcement. Following yesterday’s happy hour Dr James has been banned from watering the deck due to irresponsible use of the hose. Fair winds […]

TNS454 27/11/15 Day 23 HAHA! At last the blog has finally fallen into the control of myself and the rest of forward port watch! After weeks under the tyranny of the aft and starboard watches the truth can at last be told. Simply put Forward Port, as we all know, is the best! Now the truth is out […]

TNS454 25/11/15 Day 20 & 21 The voyage crew got land fever and made the most of our short stay. Final preparations were made for the long leg of serious sailing involved in a trans-Atlantic crossing. Las Palmas, Gran Canaries After we got in to harbour and everyone helped with the assisted climb, it was as if […]

TNS454 22/11/15 Day 18 Today dawned a bit blowy with a lot of lumps around. Movement needed a bit of planning if it wasn’t going to end with a bump. The good news was that we have been making good speed all night and everyone is enjoying a good sail. Another benefit is that there has been time […]
