Up for a Caribbean adventure?
Warm water, amazing scenery, time under sail and perhaps even swimming from the Ship. Taking in the strong greens of the forests and picture-perfect views. Not to mention sunshine too… our Caribbean voyages are popular for obvious reasons.
This is a fantastic week-long experience on board Tenacious, perfect for those who are looking for a dose of JST magic during cold winter months back home.
Captain Darren says: “It’s hard to put into words how magical it is when voyage crew come together and do something they never thought themselves capable of. It could be climbing the mast or simply spending time with people they wouldn’t normally spend time with in their everyday life. I’ve heard it described as a ‘JST feeling’ – and that’s priceless.”
What to expect
Our voyages are not luxury cruises – so if that’s what you’re after, then this is not for you. Everyone on board has a role to play as part of a Watch. Without our voyage crew, we can’t sail – that’s how crucial you are on board.
But the rewards will be worth it. You’ll experience a unique camaraderie and be part of an incredible team. And leave the ship with a sense of achievement at what you’ve experienced.
Sailing on Tenacious
Don’t worry if you’ve never sailed before – most people step on board with no experience of sailing a tall ship.
You’ll be part of our Voyage Crew, and be put into one of four teams called Watches. You’ll learn from our Permanent Crew and will take part in all the tasks necessary to operate the Ship, whether that’s setting sail, helming (steering) the Ship, assisting in the Galley or climbing the mast – though that one’s not compulsory!
And you’ll enjoy time off watch every day to take in the scenery, get to know others on board and take part in the activities we have planned. Our beautiful tall ship Tenacious becomes your home for the duration of your voyage – we want you to be comfortable and enjoy the experience of being on board.
*What you pay
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters we are able to subsidise all our voyage places. If you can, please consider making a donation or fundraising towards the full cost of your voyage. This means we can continue to offer this subsidy to those who are less able to afford our adventures.
Why sail with the JST?
Our voyages are not just boat rides in amazing settings. JST sailing adventures are about giving people the freedom to explore their ability, potential and place in the world.
Life on board is about joining in and getting involved. Everyone is seen and treated as equal. Everyone has a role to play and contributes to the best of their ability.
It’s in this unique environment that we see daily challenges fade into the background.
As Sally said: “When people ask me if I would go again, I reply ‘in a heart beat’. Seeing my buddy steering Tenacious at the helm and telling me that he felt in control for the first time in his life, was the biggest reward I could ask for”.
