Adventurers Wanted for Tall Ship Voyages
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 VEC Acorn Trust for bursary funding for 3 young people aged 16-25 years old. Each bursary will partly finance a place on a JST voyage and can be used by a young person who wishes to take part in the Leadership @ Sea Scheme. The trust’s grant making policy is to aid under privileged and deprived young people, especially in the Hampshire area (particularly from the New Forest and south west Hampshire).
If you would like to apply for a bursary to fund a place on a tall ship voyage with the JST, contact Josephine Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone her on 023 80 449108, extension 218. Details of the bursary application process are also available on the Bursaries and Project Donations page at: www.jst.org.uk.
The JST operates a 'buddy’ system on board ship for disabled travellers who wish to have an able-bodied companion, or to take their own carer with them on a voyage. Carers would have to pay the full cost of their voyage. Information on 'buddies’ can also be found on the JST website.
