JST announces summer voyages on Tenacious
Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) has announced its programme of voyages for its tall ship SV Tenacious this summer following postponements due to the pandemic.
Normal service will be resumed with a six-day voyage from Cardiff to Dublin leaving the Welsh capital on Friday June 25th. From there Tenacious will head down the Bristol Channel before sailing into the Irish Sea with its abundance of wildlife from turtles to basking sharks, arriving in Dublin on July 1st.
In total eight voyages have been scheduled over the summer and include a 9-day sail from Jersey to London and a 7-day Portsmouth round trip. Pent up demand has already seen the 14-day Greenock to Leith sailing sold out.
“We are thrilled to be resuming normal service with a superb schedule of exciting voyages,” says CEO Patrick Fleming. “Our tall ship is in excellent condition having been used for training with the Royal Navy over the winter period and we’re delighted to be welcoming our old and new friends on board. Rest assured too that we have all the checks and balances in place to ensure we are totally Covid-compliant, a commitment we take very seriously indeed.
“Post pandemic we know there is a greater need than ever for our work and the difference we make. That knowledge fuels our passion to make an even bigger impact by giving even more people of mixed abilities and circumstances the freedom to explore their ability, potential and place in the world. Above all our role is to promote an inclusive environment where we can all contribute and feel valued.”
Fleming stresses the experience aboard Tenacious is open to everyone.
“Thanks to the generosity of our supporters we are able to subsidise all our voyage places. If you can, please consider making a donation or fundraising towards the full cost of your voyage. This means we can continue to offer this subsidy to those who are less able to afford our adventures.”
