7 days on Tenacious From:£975 *UK and Europe (Coastal) - TNS511
Place: Southampton (UK)
Place: Southampton (UK)
We’re reigniting the fierce rivalry of our two majestic tall ships as they go head to head in a series of epic races out in the English Channel. It can only be the Battle of the Barques!
We’re excited to announce the return of one of the JST’s most popular events, a race between Lord Nelson and Tenacious! Both of our ships will be back home to celebrate the Trust’s 40th anniversary and we thought the best way to mark the occasion would be to stage some friendly racing along the Solent. Lord Nelson has won all three races in the past, but since then we’ve sent Tenacious all around the world to train for this rematch.
Team Tenacious is now looking for crew members to help their comeback mission – but be quick to sign up before all places are gone!
After setting sail from Southampton, the ships will spend the first night anchored in the Solent before a day of training to get the crew ready for battle. Our Captains and Race Directors will then assess the week’s weather conditions, before briefing the crews on the race courses and events.
In previous competitions, the challenges have featured voyages across to France and back. This has provided some exhilarating sailing for both ships side by side, but as with all voyages is dependent on wind conditions. In years gone by, we have also seen a series of shorter races along the English coast. Our Captains always design races that are fun and exciting, and that suit the weather conditions.
Battle of the Barques will be sure to be one of the highlight of the Jubilee Sailing Trust’s 40th anniversary celebrations, so if you fancy joining in the fun, be sure to book your place now – berths on both ships will be in high demand so now is the time to pick your ship and book your place!
SPECIAL OFFER: First 28 bookings on this voyage receive £75 discount!
