Join us on board Tenacious on this fantastic two-week voyage from the Greek region of the Mediterranean over to Monaco.
We depart from Piraeus and head towards the incredible Corinth Canal. Impassable for most modern ships, you’ll transit this, one of the world’s most amazing canals, and continue towards the Ionian Sea and into the Tyrrhenian Sea. You’ll cover sea miles enjoying amazing views as we sail up to Monaco.
Like all our voyages, everyone has a crucial role and is part of a Watch who run the ship (yes, that includes the night shift). We give everyone real responsibilities that have real consequences – this is not a luxury cruise or a holiday where ‘doing nothing’ features high on the agenda.
But the trade off is worth it. You’ll experience a unique JST camaraderie and be part of a team who are learning, supporting each other and doing things you might not have thought possible before.
Captain Darren says: “I’ve seen countless members of our voyage crew come on board lacking confidence. But then you see a transformation – barriers come down, “I can’t” becomes “I can” and they leave the ship with a new found self-belief. It’s a privilege to witness this.”
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 says:
“I learnt a lot about myself on this trip. It’s not a boat ride, it’s a working holiday. I realised how much I enjoy and need to feel part of a team.”
