Lord Nelson
Unique in its kind.
The Lord Nelson is a pioneer in the sailing community. The Lord Nelson and the Tenacious are the only two tall ships in the world designed and built to enable people of all physical disabilities to sail side-by-side on equal terms. Since the launching in `86, over 11.000 trainees sailed with this ship. The permanent crew is highly professionally trained and medically skilled. 40 Trainees with all kinds of backgrounds and handicaps can participate on voyages with this unique vessel.

Accommodation

As said, this vessel is built in such a manner enabling people of all physical and sensory abilities to take an equally active role in sailing the ships. Some of the features on board that enable this are: signs in Braille, lifts between decks, wide aisles, vibrator pads fitted to the bunks to alert in the event of an emergency, power assisted and `joystick` steering and a speaking compass. There are eightspacious cabins, suitable for wheelchairs, fitted with shower seats and adjustable basins in the shower. The Lord Nelson offers a sailing adventure for everyone!

History


Both the Lord Nelson and the Tenacious are property of the Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST). The vessel is named after Admiral Lord Nelson who gained his greatest victory in 1804. The Jubilee Sailing Trust commissioned the construction of the vessel in `84 with the goal to teach physically challenged people how to sail. Several tests aboard the Tall Ships Marques, Royalist and Soren Larsen enabled Colin Mudie to design a ship that would meet all practical requirements. The Lord Nelson was constructed in Wivenhoe, Essex with the sponsoring of several funds and officially launched two years later after quite a few detours. Interesting detail: Prince Andrew en Sarah Ferguson performed the naming ceremony.
