- PRESS RELEASE -
Only Daredevils need apply.
Fancy doing something a little bit out of the ordinary? Maybe an arctic trek takes a little too long in the training and skydiving has been done too many times? Well how about this for something a little bit different?
On Saturday 19th September Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) will be offering you the chance to climb to the button of the mast on their 65 metre long tall ship Tenacious.
Free climb the first ratlines (that’s the rope and wood step ladder) and make your way to the platform first at 40ft then 75ft, until it’s just a rope ladder between you and the 123ft high button.
Jubilee Sailing Trust is looking for people to beat the record they achieved in Southampton in May 2009 when 40 people took to the masts in aid of the JST.
All that they ask is that people raise £150 through sponsorship and fundraising in whatever way they see fit in return for an experience that not many people can ever say they’ve had.
All you need to do to register is call Matt Gravelling on 023 8044 9108 or go to www.jst.org.uk.
Jubilee Sailing Trust is a registered charity based in Southampton, which owns and operates two tall ships, Tenacious and Lord Nelson. Both ships adapted to enable able-bodied and disabled people to become voyage crew on sailing voyages ranging from 5 to 45 days in length.
