This voyage sets off from one great island and finishes in another. If you’re up for a bit of a challenge, this trip – upwind almost all the way to Bermuda – may just be the thing for you.
Setting off from the Caribbean, with its clear waters and stunning backdrop, we may even be able to stop and anchor at one of the islands on the way. We then head out into the Atlantic, making our way towards Bermuda.
With plenty of time to get to know your fellow crew, this voyage has all the ingredients you need for a magnificent Tall Ship sailing experience.
Captain Simon says: “Everyone is welcome on board Tenacious and that’s what makes her so special. She’s the only sea-going Tall Ship in the world that can be sailed by a mixed-ability crew”.
What to expect
It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or an experienced sailor, you’re in for an unforgettable sailing experience on a JST voyage. We give everyone real responsibilities that have real consequences, and you’re part of a Watch who run the ship (with the support of the Permanent Crew of course).
We know this experience gives our Voyage Crew a fresh perspective on their own ability, and we see people build confidence and resilience. You might come away slightly windswept, but with a sense of achievement and self-belief.
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 Peter said: “It was fantastic that during her build so many people had a hand in making Tenacious what she is today. Since then I’ve enjoyed meeting diverse groups of people on board, with everyone, disabled or not, gaining so much from their experience.”
