Sailing to recovery
The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) promotes the integration of men and women of all physical abilities through the challenge and adventure of tall ship sailing. On board our two magnificent, fully accessible tall ships 'Lord Nelson' and 'Tenacious' everybody gets the chance to participate in all aspects of running the ship. The JST was established in 1978 and over 35,000 people have sailed with us. Of these approximately 13,500 people were disabled, including 5,000 wheelchair users.
Anyone over the age of 16 can sail with us and we take an equal mix of able-bodied and physically disabled crew on each trip with a maximum of 40people on each voyage. We also strive to achieve integration on other levels such as age, background, religion, culture and gender, tall ship sailing can be a challenging for anyone. At the JST we believe that with team work and understanding, this challenge can be met.
