*** Please note this voyage is now sold out. We have other fantastic voyages available here. This is the voyage originally due to depart on 17th June***
Join us on board Tenacious for this incredible voyage around the coast of Scotland.
With two weeks on board and stunning scenery to boot, this is going to be a voyage like no other. We’ll head up through the Western Isles, passing the Orkney Islands, down the East coast of Scotland and heading up river to berth in Leith near Edinburgh.
If the weather is on our side we may only experience an hour of darkness during the night – giving you more time to enjoy those stunning views of the beautiful Scottish coastline, including during the night watches.
And you’ll get a great experience of ship life, with two full weeks on board. On Watch, you’ll be part of the team looking after the Ship, (with the support of our Permanent Crew of course).
Captain Darren: “Our Permanent Crew love every voyage, but this is one they’ll all be keen to be part of. The Scottish coastline offers so much, we know you’ll finish your voyage with a wishlist of places to visit in Scotland. The added bonus with this trip is that the night watch will certainly be a different experience, with more daylight hours to enjoy”.
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 arrive in Leith 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.”
