This is a fantastic week-long voyage on board Tenacious, perfect for those who are looking for a dose of JST magic this spring.
We start our journey in Piraeus, the great port city a short distance from Athens. We’ll then make our way through the beautiful Greek Isles, before sailing across the crystal blue water of the Mediterranean towards Cyprus and into the bustling port of Limassol.
As one of our voyage crew, you need to arrive with a sense of adventure (don’t expect to be lying on deck catching rays all week). Everyone is expected to get involved and join in as part of their Watch duties.
And the trade off will be worth it. We see voyage crew build resilience and confidence. They come away with a new-found sense of self-belief. And they describe their experience as life-changing.
Captain Simon says: “It’s seeing our voyage crew come together, friendships form and people forgetting their daily challenges – that’s what makes it for me.”
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.”
