James's blog: To really get a sense of the JST it is good to consider the example of an assisted climb. This is the process by which people who cannot climb up the mast unaided get a chance to do so, with help. The striking thing about this event is that it sums up everything the JST is and stands for. On the one hand you have people with physical disabilities who are hoisted up, or are enabled to climb up the rigging with a little assistance. On the other hand you have the central role of teamwork where all the other crew line up along one side of the deck to aid the climbers by holding on to a line attached to their backs, or their wheelchairs. This to me demonstrates what the JST is about. It's not only about enabling disabled people to go sailing, but ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to fulfil their human potential.
