This part of the East Coast of Ireland is generally protected from the prevailing winds and Atlantic swell, making exploring this coastline an adventurer’s delight. Dublin bay is a UNESCO Biosphere reserve protected for its biological diversity and flourishing habitats since 2015.
The beautiful Irish coastline with its undulating cliffs, mountain peaks and pretty peninsulas will take your breath away as you work closely with your fellow voyage crew to navigate around these stunning waters teeming with seabirds and wildlife.
Enjoy the views of Dublin’s cityscape stretching from Howth to Dun Laoghaire, along with Poolbeg Lighthouse and the Pigeon House Towers. An opportunity not to be missed.
What to expect
What a voyage this looks set to be. You’ll be a crucial member of one of the most important teams you’ve ever been a part of and will make your round trip from Dublin with memories to last a lifetime.
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 says: “It was fantastic to be part of Tenacious’ build over 20 years ago. Since then I’ve enjoyed meeting diverse groups of people on board, with everyone, disabled or not, gaining so much from their experience.”
