Have you ever dreamed of a real tall ship ocean passage in the southern hemisphere and rounding Cape Horn? This could be your chance. With the specially designed features of our JST ship, this passage is an accessible opportunity for some people whose disabilities prevent them from joining other vessels on such a remote sailing voyage. But before the big off, you will also get to enjoy time in New Zealand where the locals are very hospitable to the crews of sailing ships, recognising what it takes to sail in the southern hemisphere. You'll spend Christmas in the Chatham Islands, then cross the International Date Line (gaining an extra day in your life!) and spend more than a month at sea. The peak of your achievement will be rounding the famous Cape Horn – making history by being onboard the first accessible tall ship ever to do so. The landfall will be Ushuaia - this remote town is a departure point for Antarctica and as you will be there in the region’s summer time, you may meet other intrepid cruising and charter vessels getting ready to set off across the Drake Passage.
