The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) is an international, United Nations accredited disability charity, promoting integration through the challenge and adventure of tall ship sailing. We provide 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 Jubilee Sailing Trust has officially established a presence in Australia! Our new operation will be based in Melbourne and our expansion will build on the Sail the World legacy, creating a new axis for international development and further opportunities to provide disabled and able-bodied people with tall ship sailing adventures.
The Jubilee Sailing Trust 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. Since the JST was established in 1978 over 40,000 people have sailed with us. Of these approximately 15,000 people were disabled and 5,000 wheelchair users. Lord Nelson and Tenacious are the only two tall ships in the world that have been purpose built to enable people of all physical and sensory abilities to take an active role in sailing. The features on board include: - Signs in Braille - Braille book - Lifts between decks for wheel chair users or those with limited mobility - Vibrator pads fitted to the bunks to alert people who are deaf or hearing impaired in the event of an emergency - Power assisted steering or joystick assisted steering to enable those with limited mobility to easily manoeuvre the ship - An induction loop in the mess room to assist those with hearing impairments during briefing sessions - Wide aisles below decks - Low level fittings - Guidance track on deck to help blind and visually impaired crew to navigate their way around - Speaking compass to enable blind or visually impaired voyage crew to steer the ship - ‚ÄòUnwin' fixing points throughout for wheelchairs in rough weather - Bathrooms include full facilities for all physical abilities
