Going to Sea in Style




"I must go down to the seas again,
to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship
and a star to steer her by;"
Sea Fever
John Masefield



The Sea has always held a fascination and thus sailing had an allure, but not simply dingy motoring or yachting about ~ oh no ~ when one of the two ship’s built to take disabled crew sailed into my home port I had to go take a look.  

I was hooked, more than that I was booked!  A one month voyage.

But this “Once in a lifetime, never to be repeated opportunity” was so exhilarating, it was repeated a further three times.  On the right you will find my full and frank [dis]Able Sea Persons Twig’s for some of the voyages.

The Jubilee Sailing Trust was set up with a grant from the Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee Trust in 1978.  The Charitable Trust now has two purpose built square rigged ships taking a mix of ages, races and abilities out to see across the globe.

Sailing with them is one of the most exhilarating, exhausting, exciting, frightening, fabulous experiences ever.
