Your Ships Need YOU!

Sailing the JST ships successfully around the world is no easy challenge and relies on expert knowledge, planning and teamwork. We plan our voyages to take advantage of weather patterns, endeavouring to sail as much as possible without using their engines.

Your help today will ensure that we can continue to carry the highest standard safety equipment on our ships. Life rafts are just one example of essential equipment required by the Maritime Coastguard Agency - which needs maintaining and servicing to the highest standards. This is a costly activity that must be done on a regular basis by a qualified professional. A gift from you today will help ensure this equipment is properly maintained to keep our crews safe at sea.

Tenacious will be undergoing maintenance in July, and an area which will require attention is the on-board safety equipment. This will include a full inspection and evaluation of her life rafts as well as many other safety devices.

Having access to equipment which increases the ability to communicate during an on-board emergency is crucial. This is why we hope to soon be able to purchase a set of Skull Radios. In the event of an emergency, these radios will allow crew to stay in contact with each other whilst also having both hands free to safely maneuver around the ship. In reduced visibility these hands-free radios could be essential in reaching a crew member in danger.

This is why we are asking you, a JST supporter or past or present crew member, if you will donate to ensure that our crew will be prepared should the worst occur.

Jubilee Sailing Trust

The Jubilee Sailing Trust has been changing lives since 1978. In that year it became a registered charity through the extraordinary vision of a dedicated group of people working against the odds to make their dream a reality. Back then the idea of integrating physically disabled with non-disabled people on a tall ship was a unique concept, and yet the JST still remains to this day the only organisation of its kind in the world.

The JST is a world leader in social inclusion, bringing together people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to sail as a unified crew on-board two purpose built tall ships – Lord Nelson and Tenacious.
