Voyage no: TNS585

If you want to experience a voyage between two great capital cities, then this voyage may be the one for you. 

Let Tenacious take you from Leith (near Edinburgh) to London. With a long run down the North Sea, you’ll experience a busy waterway, sandbanks and windfarms and a lot of history too. We’ll either follow the coastline down towards the Thames, or perhaps we’ll nip over to a Dutch Port at the discretion of your Captain.   

Captain Simon says: “Whether we follow the coast down past famous names such as Lindisfarne, Flamborough Head and the Wash or nip over to the Netherlands, this is a voyage with lots going on. It won’t disappoint.”

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”.
