Thank you to everybody who helped us celebrate Tenacious at Twenty.

Built by you – our amazing community of supporters – and sailed on by thousands in the JST family, SV Tenacious reached an important milestone in 2020. 

Since her maiden voyage in 2000, Tenacious has provided life-changing inclusive voyages to 20,000 people, including disabled people, those with mental health conditions or long-term ill-health issues, and the socially isolated.

Starting in August 2020 she underwent a Special Survey. We needed to raise £500,000 so that she could continue sailing, beyond the Covid-19 crisis and for many years to come. Thank you to each and every supporter who donated towards these costs; future generations can experience the magic of a JST voyage and the life-changing benefits our voyages bring.

Testimonial

"I saw a young man’s life being changed for the better, because of his experience on board. His mindset, and the mindset of his parents too, had totally re-set. It’s just one story of many ... the JST does change lives."

Mike - sailed over 120,000 nautical miles with the JST and has spent more than 6000 days on board.
