At the Jubilee Sailing Trust we greatly value the time and effort that all of our volunteers give in order to help maintain our tall ship, Tenacious.

Tenacious goes through regular periods of maintenance throughout the year and is maintained to the highest standards to ensure the safety and comfort of all those who sail with us.

Volunteers come from a wide range of professional backgrounds and work together to share their skills and expertise on both of our ships.

Maintenance in 2020

This year Tenacious will undergo her special survey in September and October in Sharpness.

We’re on the look out for general maintenance skills from 1 October to help us during this period. If you would like to put your expertise to good use on our tall ship, we’d love to hear from you. 

In return food and accommodation is covered, as well as the opportunity to put your valuable skills to good use. You’ll be part of a great team doing incredibly important work and will to get to know our tall ship even better.
