The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) is an international, United Nations accredited disability charity, promoting integration through the challenge and adventure of tall ship sailing.
The JST provides life-changing adventures to people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of physical ability. Our voyages change lives by improving self-esteem, building confidence, and providing fantastic leadership and life skills.
The JST takes both disabled and able-bodied men and women to sea, to not only teach them how to crew a tall ship, but to promote equality, sharing, and to celebrate our individual differences by working together to achieve greater things.
Life on-board JST's tall ships can be tough, but it’ll give you skills you can use for life! You’ll learn how to exercise self discipline and resilience in challenging situations, develop empathy and mutual respect for other team members and adapt to new environments and cultures. You really will be a fully fledged member of the crew!
Joining one of the voyages is a great opportunity to meet lots of new people from all over the world, of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. The crew will also be there to guide you, and we really recommend getting to know them and discovering their amazing stories!
This really is a gap year with a difference! Travelling the world whilst onboard a Jubilee Sailing Trust tall ship is sure to shine bright on your C.V, and the experience you gain will help propel you forward in your future career, no matter what path you take.
A gap year with The Jubilee Sailing Trust will broaden your horizons, help you discover new places and above all else, it's a great way to have the time of your life!
