Adventurers Wanted for Tall Ship Adventures
The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) owns and operates the majestic tall ships, Lord Nelson and Tenacious, specially designed and built to enable able-bodied and disabled people to sail side by side as equals, learning new skills, forging great friendships and meeting new challenges.
The JST has received a generous donation from the Rotary Club of Havant of £300 per person for bursary funding for 12 people to experience a tall ship voyage. Each bursary will partly finance a place on a JST voyage. The funding for these bursaries comes from a legacy left to the Rotary Club of Havant by a keen supporter of the JST.
To qualify for a bursary applicants should preferably live in the area bounded by Portsmouth/Petersfield/Chichester and be physically disabled, a wheelchair user or visually impaired. The Rotary Club of Havant would like bursary recipients to attend an evening meeting at the club after their trip to talk about their experiences on their voyage. The Club would be happy to arrange transport to a meeting, if required.
If you would like to apply for a bursary to help to fund a place on a tall ship voyage with the Jubilee Sailing Trust, contact the JST at: email@example.com or call: 023 8044 9138.
The JST operates a 'buddy’ system on board ship where able-bodied and disabled people are matched to help each other during their voyage. Information on 'buddies’ can be found on the JST website.
