One of our epic Mediterranean adventures, this roundtrip voyage sets off from, and returns into, the bustling port of Limassol in Cyprus.
Beautiful scenery and stunning sea views, this voyage will appeal to our supporters looking for a shorter trip on board our amazing Tall Ship Tenacious and is typical of our ‘hub’ approach (going into and out of the same port), easing your travel arrangements.
Our voyages are not luxury cruises – so if this is what you’re after, then a JST experience is not for you. Everyone on board has a role to play as part of a Watch. Without our voyage crew, we can’t sail – that’s how crucial you are on board.
But the rewards will be worth it. You’ll experience a unique camaraderie and be part of an incredible team. And leave the ship with a sense of achievement at what you’ve experienced.
Captain Darren says: “I’ve heard it described as a “JST feeling” – and I’d agree with that. It’s hard to put into words how magical it is when voyage crew come together and do something they never thought themselves capable of.
It could be climbing the mast or simply spending time with people they wouldn’t normally spend time with in their everyday life. But it’s exactly that – a feeling you get on a JST voyage – and that’s priceless.”
What to expect
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 Perrmanent Crew and will be given opportunities to help on all aspects of ship life, whether it’s climbing the mast or unfurling the sails through to helping on deck and in the galley.
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, meaning you pay the ‘subsidised contribution’. If you can, please consider making a donation or fundraising towards the full cost of your voyage. This means we can continue to offer bursaries for 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.
It’s an experience that liberates people facing challenge in their life – whether they are disabled, dealing with health issues or are experiencing social isolation or disadvantage.
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 people’s daily challenges fade into the background.
As Anjelica says:
“Just do it. Pack wet weather gear and go. If you get the bug you’ll always go back. If you don’t, you’ll always have a story.”
