2020 Tall Ships Challenge

2020 Tall Ships Challenge


Are you looking for a Tall Ships Challenge?

No sailing experience is necessary but we thought could be a challenge that might be of interest to you.

Spinal Injuries Ireland have commissioned the SV Tenacious through the Jubilee Sailing Trust for 8days in July 2020. We will be crewing the ship as part of the Parade of Sails as well as participating in the Tall Ships 2020 Race! The Tenacious is fully accessible allowing us to build a uniquely diverse crew including 6 wheelchair users who have sustained a spinal cord injury, people walking with aid and able-bodied people who are simply looking for a different voyage or a special adventure.

All those taking part will also be fundraising to help support services for over 2100 people who live with a spinal cord injury across Ireland.

This challenge is open to people of all ages (16+), all backgrounds and all abilities...and is set to be a truly extraordinary trip. We are seeking a crew of 35 in total, and currently have a 16 amazing team members signed up.

Are you up for the challenge?
