Residents’ chance to be all at sea

NORTHUMBERLAND residents are being invited to apply for places on an exciting sea adventure.

The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST), which owns and operates the tall ships Lord Nelson and Tenacious, has received generous donations for bursary funding to help people from the North East of England experience a tall ship voyage.

There are currently berths available for August and September on trips departing from Hartlepool, Whitby and Hull.

The ships are specially designed and built to enable able-bodied and disabled people to sail side by side as equals.

For more information or to apply for a bursary, which will partly finance a place on a JST voyage, contact Josephine Hall by telephone on 02380 449108 – extension 218 – or e-mail

Details of the bursary application process are also available on the Bursaries and Project Donations page at
