Join Jubilee Sailing Trust on Firday 31st March 2017 to celebrate the Launch of the anticipated book – Sail the World.
On 21st October 2012, STS Lord Nelson left her home port of Southampton to start her epic voyage around the world. She returned to her berth in Southampton on 26 September 2014. This 2 year round the world voyage was an enormous voyage for the Jubilee Sailing Trust.
During the voyage, the STS Lord Nelson affectionately known as Nellie, covered 52,577 nautical miles , 60,482 land miles. Nellie did not have any passengers, she was crewed by 2 Captains, Cpt. Barbara Campbell and Cpt. Chris Phillips along with a professional crew and around 1,000 volunteer crew both able bodied and disabled.
Written by one of our long standing supporters Alan Fisher with a lot of input from Dave Mercer they put an enormous amount of their time into compiling this book for JST. Alan persuaded two of our captains Captain Barbara & Captain Chris to write the articles for the book, without the huge amount of work they have put in, it could not have gone ahead.
Sail the World has been sponsored by Chrissie and Andy Parsons and printed at cost by York Publishing Services Ltd. All Profits will go to the Jubilee Sailing Trust.
