Bit of a charity promo, but also the chance to do something somewhat different.
In a few weeks time, the tall sailing ship, Tenacious will be moored in London’s Docklands, and for a suitable charitable donation you can climb up the tall mast.
Free climb the first ratlines (thatâ€™s the rope and wood step ladder) and make your way to the platform first at 40ft then 75ft, until itâ€™s just a rope ladder between you and the 123ft high button.
They are asking that anyone wanting to participate is able to raise at least Â£150 through sponsorship and fundraising.
To register call Matt Gravelling on 023 8044 9108 or go to www.jst.org.uk.
As much as I would LOVE to do this, I am somewhat scared of heights when on narrow ledges, and this would probably be too scary for me. Also, any panic attacks I have would cause more than usual annoyance for everyone else wanting to go up. Which is actually quite annoying.
About the charity…
Jubilee Sailing Trust is a registered charity based in Southampton, which owns and operates two tall ships, Tenacious and Lord Nelson. Both ships adapted to enable able-bodied and disabled people to become voyage crew on sailing voyages ranging from 5 to 45 days in length.
