19/07/15 LN873 Well….where are we? The answer is somewhere on the sea between Alesund and Rosendahl. We left Alesund yesterday morning in a fine parade of the sailing ships and lots of admirers in small craft hooting and tooting.

19/07/15 TNS444 What a beautiful day for sailing. After our safety briefings and instruction sessions in Weymouth we departed the pier and anchored in the bay.

15/07/15 TNS443 The breakfast call came at 07:30 and the fog had rolled in over the English Channel. However, as the morning wore on, there was hope that there might be an Easterly wind that could aid us in sailing to Weymouth! We were given a talk on setting sails to hopefully prepare us to raise them […]

14/07/15 TNS443 It is windy and wet in the North Sea as Tenacious is about to enter the Dover TSS. Sadly we are not under sail as the wind is directly SW – where we want to be! We had a very windy night at anchor off Oostende that was so rough that the permanent […]

14/07/15 LN872 We have arrived in the fjords of Norway after a taxing voyage across the North Sea in a mixture of storms, rain and moments of being becalmed. We fought to continue to be in the race until the last moment but as the weather continued to turn against us it made the captain […]

13/07/15 LN782 After all the excitement of the dolphins and whales the excitement continued with a traditional Sunday dinner including Yorkshire Puddings!

The JST fondly remembers Ian Shuttleworth, a Trustee 1986-2012, Vice Chairman 1997-2013 and Vice President 2013-2015 who sadly passed away on 23rd May 2015. Ian embodied the values of the JST in every respect and will be sorely missed by us all. He was extremely proud of what the JST accomplished during his lifetime and […]

14/07/15 TNS443 After delicious pizza in the lower mess with the whole crew, it was time to settle in to the comfy recesses of the boat while another lucky watch got the drizzle and fog of the 12-4pm watch. We chatted together and played a few rounds of cards as the rain began to ease off. After […]

It’s competition time! To celebrate Tenacious’ 15th anniversary on 1st September, we’re asking you to guess how many miles you think she would have travelled by the time she reaches Southampton on the big day. Over her 15 years she’s embarked on a number of epic voyages, and has travelled the world from France to […]

13/07/15 TNS443 After a slightly delayed start due to engineering problems, we were finally away. Unfortunately, the wind was not blowing in the right direction for Weymouth, and we therefore motored to our anchor point off Oostende.

12/07/15 TNS443 Today has been hot and sunny, and, after more briefings, climbs, evac. drills etc., the crew have had more time to explore Brugge. Lots of chocolate and fabulous beers, and sights before wandering back to our cosy cabins.
