  • SHIPSHAPE AT 95

    Friday, 24 October 2014

    The Jubilee Sailing Trust are famous for their indiscriminate approach to those sailing on their voyages. Regardless of age or disability, provided you are fit and able they are happy to invite you aboard their specially adapted ships The Lord Nelson and Tenacious. Topsail are proud to reflect this in our own bespoke Jubilee Sailing Trust policies, which are tailored to meet the needs and requirements of JST participants.

    One such example of this is Topsail customer Daphne Hinton, 95, who has recently come back from a trip aboard JST’s Tenacious.

    Despite the conditions not being ideal meaning that sailing wasn’t always possible (instead relying on the diesel engine to power the ship) Daphne thoroughly enjoyed her time on Tenacious - her third voyage on a tall ship, especially when she was able to take control of the helm with the help of a crew member and audio guidance.
