Voyage no: TNS553

Sailing the beautiful Greek Islands on this ten-day voyage on our Tall Ship Tenacious, you’ll witness breathtaking scenery and fantastic views of the Islands throughout your journey. It’s a classical sailing ground and at this time of year will be less busy – meaning we’ll get to enjoy the amazing waters of the Aegean Sea at their very best.  

Our voyage will also mark Greek Easter on Sunday 19th April, when we’ll be anchored off the beautiful Saronic island of Spetses and/or Porto Cheli on the Greek mainland. 

As with all our voyages, you’ll become immersed in an unforgettable sailing experience. Everyone has a role and is part of a Watch who run the ship (yes, that includes the night shift) with the support of the ship’s crew. We give everyone real responsibilities that have real consequences. 

In return the rewards will be huge. You’ll experience that unique JST camaraderie and will come away with a sense of achievement and self-belief. You’ll be part of a team and will do things you might not have thought possible before. It’s an experience you won’t forget. 

Captain Darren says: “Every trip affects me in different ways. As one of our popular coastal voyages, I see brilliant camaraderie on voyages such as these. It’s brilliant seeing voyage crew come together”.

 

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 Kate from Sheffield says:

“It’s important to feel alive – and that’s what the JST gave me this week.”
