Leaving the bustling port of Limassol in Cyprus, we’ll make our way up to the classical sailing ground of the Greek Isles. There will be so many islands to see as we navigate East to West on the clear waters of the Mediterranean.
With ten days on board Tenacious, you’ll immerse yourself in ship life together with your fellow voyage crew as you head towards the port city of Piraeus.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or an experienced sailor, you’re in for an unforgettable sailing experience on a JST voyage. We give everyone real responsibilities that have real consequences, and you’re part of a Watch who run the ship (with the support of the ship’s crew of course).
We know this experience gives our voyage crew a fresh perspective on their own ability, and we see people build confidence and resilience. You might come away windswept, but with a sense of achievement and self-belief.
Captain Simon says: “Everyone is welcome on board Tenacious and that’s what makes her so special. She’s the only tall ship in the world that can be sailed by a mixed-ability crew, including disabled and non-disabled”.
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 Permanent 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 Michael says:
“I can honestly say going on the ship changed my life. I saw others on board deal with huge challenges – people with physical disabilities like the blind young man on my watch. Being in that environment made me think for myself and realise my priorities.”
