Leaving Dublin we will make our way south passing some spectacular and memorable coastal scenery as we go. Taking in much of the Atlantic coastline, we will then move into the English Channel to make our way up to the Solent and bring the ship alongside in Portsmouth.
This summer voyage will provide an exhilarating time aboard our unique tall ship, Tenacious, giving all voyage crew ample time to get used to life at sea and form lasting friendships. Every member of our inclusive crew will have the opportunity to helm the ship, climb the mast, set sails and much more.
Captain Simon says: “It’s seeing our voyage crew come together, friendships form and people forgetting their daily challenges – that’s what makes it for me.”
What to expect
You’ll be part of a unique team as Tenacious sails on home waters towards London, and that’s an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.
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 Ruth says: “From my first voyage, I was in awe of the Permanent Crew and how they worked together with the Voyage Crew. My work with the JST has been a huge part of my career, thousands of hours volunteering and hundreds of hours sailing – I have many amazing memories”.
