Another epic mediterranean adventure you can be part of this summer, this is a two-week passage voyage through the Mediterranean sea around the Southern European Coast.
Leaving Monaco, we’ll head South toward the Balearic Islands and may call into a mainland port such as Barcelona or Valencia or stop in at one of the islands such as Palma de Mallorca. As we near the end of our voyage, we’ll head into the open waters of the Atlantic where we can expect a bigger swell and potentially “some weather” (that’s not a technical term), finishing up in the historic Spanish port city of Cadiz.
As one of our voyage crew, we need you to arrive with a sense of adventure (if you want a relaxed holiday or think you’ll be lying on deck catching rays, then this is not for you). Our voyage crew are crucial – without them we can’t sail.
But it will be worth it. You’ll experience a unique camaraderie and be part of a team that recognises everyone’s individual contribution. Voyage crew come away with a new-found sense of self-belief and they describe their experience as life-changing.
Captain Simon says: “Team spirit is palpable on board a JST voyage. People who were unknown to each other are thrown into a situation where they are essentially in charge of the ship. They work together, support and encourage each other, and push themselves beyond what they may have thought possible. Everyone gets something from that.”
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 Paige says:
“I felt a sense of belonging and freedom being on board. There is great camaraderie amongst all the crew.”
