At the JST we want to give everyone the opportunity to sail with us, so regardless of your circumstances we will try our hardest to get you on board. The JST subsidises every berth so the full price you see in the brochure is already a reduced rate. However, we’re full of great ideas to make a tall ship adventure more accessible to you.

In order to make our voyages as accessible to everyone, we have bursary funding available for those who may not be able to afford the advertised prices. Both able bodied and disabled individuals, from the age of 16 upwards, can apply for funding of up to 50% off the cost of their selected voyage. There are many different bursary funds available for us to use, catering for a wide variety of individuals. This includes, but is not limited to, those participating in our Youth Leadership at Sea and Sailing Forces programmes. For more information about currently available bursaries please contact

Help us help you, larger projects

If you would like to help us keep these voyages affordable and continue our life changing work this is one way you can help. At the moment there are three projects which you can donate towards:

  • Bursary and assisted funding – help keep our voyages affordable to all
  • Operating the JST tall ships – help keep Lord Nelson and Tenacious at sea
  • Dry dockings – a statutory requirement to keep our tall ships at sea
