New Ship Allows Disabled Crew To Sail As Equals With Able Bodied

October 21, 2012

A tall ship is due to set sail to become the first vessel of its kind to travel around the world with a crew of disabled sailors.

Lord Nelson owned by The Jubilee Sailing Trust has been making final preparations to leave Southampton on Sunday for its 23-month, 50,000-mile (80,467km) journey.

The 180ft (55m) ship is the first tall ship to have been built to enable physically-disabled and able-bodied people to sail side-by-side.

It will visit more than 30 countries on all seven continents and cross the equator four times during the trip.

    That’s good news Feazer, but you have posted this comment in the wrong post. I have written many posts on Daniel’s case- please search his name on the site to find them and re-post in one of those.

    Thanks and best wishes
