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 mission of the Jubilee Sailing Trust is to promote the integration of people of all physical abilities through the challenge and adventure of sailing tall ships on the open sea. The trust runs a range of accessible adventure holidays and sailing experiences in various regions of the world, including Australia, and of varying durations, from one day to several weeks. From the Have Wheelchair Will Travel Blog: The specially designed features of the ship (The Tenacious) allow everyone, regardless of disability to play a full and active role as a member of crew. The entire vessel is wheelchair accessible INCLUDING the platforms up to the mast and bowsprit. Lifts allow crew members with a disability to access all levels of the ship without need to use the steep stairs. The decks have small raised pieces of wood to act as a guide for visually impaired crew members (see photo above) and tie down points to secure wheelchairs. Secured flip down seats allow crew members with restricted mobility to be seated while working the ropes. Even a talking compass is located on the bridge for people with a hearing impairment. Hoists are available for crew members who need to transfer from their wheelchair to the bunk. The bunk above is on a pulley system which allows it to be raised while the person is transferred. The bathroom is accessible with a flip down shower seat, hand held shower head, rails throughout and lever taps. Signage is in braille to assist vision impaired crew members. Vibrating pads are located under the mattress of any hearing impaired crew members which are used if the alarm is used in an emergency. There is medical assistance on each voyage - either a nurse or doctor on board.
