The ship woke today in time to catch the sun rising across the marina of the La Palma.  As the sun began its ascent and cleared the few remaining clouds it promised a ‘scorchio’ day ahead.  As usual everyone mustered to the call of a full English breakfast, but more importantly for all was the […]

LN893 02/03/2016 16:30 day 3 Second day out of port, the island of La Palma has just come to view. This morning was a lot brighter than yesterday as a result a few familiar and almost forgotten faces began to reappear on deck after the seasickness that overtook so much of the crew yesterday. Our […]

The Little Britain Challenge Cup has grown into the second largest sailing regatta in Britain, second only to Cowes Week and the largest construction industry regatta in Europe. The regatta started in 1988 and now attracts over 3,000 people and more than 250 boats for four days of racing, networking and socialising. The Jubilee Sailing Trust is one of the charities who have benefited from the efforts of the Little Britain Challenge Cup, receiving more than £500,000 since 1988.

The Windsor Cup Regatta is the annual medical regatta open to any boat with a valid IRC Certificate and any other non-rated cruising boat which has one or more members of the medical and or allied profession, pharmaceutical or medical related company on board. Although a relaxed event we are extremely lucky to be supported by the Royal London Yacht Club who organise all of the racing and also provide supper on the Friday night and the Royal Yacht Squadron whom we have secured our prize giving dinner with once again for the Saturday night.

Take part in this fantastic event and raise money for the Jubilee Sailing Trust. Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s a truly spectacular event for all involved.

TNS457 21/02/16 Our time onboard the Tenacious started straight after boarding, where all the hearty crew and seamen were welcomed with some basic bracing and evacuation training. Onboard the ship we had a huge variety of people from all over the world, with there being a majority who had never stepped foot on a tall ship before! A busy day […]

TNS456 18/02/2016 We picked up an early pilot and prepared ourselves to moor up in Puntareanas. We were not under sail as the wind remained unpredictable as it had been through the trip. Mooring lines were laid out and fenders at the ready once we were safely moored up the gangway was ready so we could spend some time […]

TNS456 17/02/2016 We’ve been having so much fun that we’ve had to amalgamate two days worth of blogs into one big entry. Since you last dipped into the website to see what we were up to, we have safely anchored off Isla Tortuga (note spelling correction!) following a sail around the deep channel surrounding Tortuga’s two islands. Tuesday […]

TNS456 15/02/2016  We set off on the morning of the twelfth for an adventure not fully realizing the excitement and fun we were going to experience. We were met on the beach by our two dazzling Costa Rican guides. From the word go, we were putty in their hands; girls and boys alike… After half an hour of […]

TNS456 14/02/2016  After St. Valentine chocolates given to us by Jorge and a an amazing birthday cake with inextinguishable candles for Robin, we have just left our anchorage and happily, by steering round the Isla de Cana, have been able to hoist sail in a pleasant south-westerly wind.  This will speed us on our way to lisle Tortuga on […]
