The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) is on the search for a young volunteer from the north-east of Scotland (age 16 to 25) to participate in the trip of a lifetime aboard their sailing tall ship, Lord Nelson.

The place for the week long sailing voyage (21 to 28 April) from Aberdeen to the Isle of Man is sponsored by SFF Services Limited (SFFSL) and will provide the successful candidate with an amazing opportunity to experience life aboard this famous tall ship. SFFSL is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation and provides a range of specialised services to the marine industries, particularly the offshore oil and gas industry.

As part of the sailing package, the successful young volunteer will participate in JST’s Leadership at Sea programme that helps equip youngsters with essential life skills that can aid future career development.

The aim of JST is to provide life-changing adventures to people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of physical ability. Their voyages change lives by improving self-esteem, building confidence and providing fantastic leadership and other skills.

Josephine Hall of JST said: “SFF Services has supported the work of the JST for many years and we are thrilled to be sailing from their home port and to be able to take a young local person to join us on the trip, leaving Aberdeen on Lord Nelson, in April.”

Derek Duthie, SFFSL finance director, said: “We are delighted to sponsor this place aboard the Lord Nelson as it provides an enjoyable and worthwhile opportunity for a young person to work as part of a team and aid their personal development.”
