Sail beyond limitations…
Are you looking for an experience with a bit of a difference this winter?
If you’re looking to gain experience and build up your sea miles, would like to be part of our community-building ambition – or quite simply are looking for an excuse to get away this January, then this experience might be the one for you.
99% of people who sail with us say they now have the freedom to explore their ability and push their own boundaries. That’s what JST voyages are all about, and nowhere is this more true than on our 32-day passage voyage from Las Palmas to Antigua. It’s more of an endurance event than other voyages and it will be an amazing way to kick off your 2020.
We start in Las Palmas and see the new year in in style. It’s an old seafaring tradition for the oldest person on board to ring out the old year, while the youngest person on board rings in the new year. We’ll then cross the Atlantic, which means this isn’t for the faint hearted. People who were once unknown to each other and from different backgrounds very quickly come together to work as a team. The environment is unusual and can take people out of their comfort zone.
But the rewards? People tell us that sailing with us changes perceptions both of their own ability and of those who they spent the time with, regardless of physical ability. As voyage crew, you will gain new skills and knowledge, and we know you’ll walk away with a huge sense of achievement.
Our voyages really change lives for the better. Let Michael tell you why:
‘’It was challenging physically, mentally and socially. I will look back and be thankful for the friendships made and memories created. It has made me a stronger person and will affect every decision I make in the future’’
As with all our voyages, this experience is for a mixed ability crew and we currently have availability in our upper bunks.
Why do need people of all abilities? Our voyages operate a buddy system where two people are paired together, one able-bodied and one physically-disabled. They share the voyage and help one another along the way, often resulting in special bonds that leave a positive and lasting impression. We need to make sure we have the right balance between disabled people and able-bodied.
