    Supporting the tenacious

    Napier Port was proud to host the world’s oldest operational wooden sailing ship, the SV Tenacious, which offers a life-changing experience for people with disabilities.

    The ship is run by the Jubilee Sailing Trust, which takes both disabled and able-bodied men and women to sea, to not only teach them how to crew a tall sailing ship, but to promote equality, sharing, and to celebrate individual differences through working together.

    Project coordinator Charlie Green says the Trust aims to “break down barriers and try to demonstrate that society can be a bit more inclusive in respect to those living with a disability”.

    The entire ship is wheelchair accessible (including the rigging), there are speaking compasses, Braille on the handrails, and the ship can even be helmed with a joystick.

    Ship’s Master Simon Catterson thanked Napier Port for waiving all berthing fees for the Tenacious’ call, saying “we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Napier and hope to be able to visit again in the future.”

      Sustainability aligned with global goals: 

      At the United Nations summit meeting in September 2015, world leaders adopted 17 global goals (and 169 targets) as a set of universal goals that aim to address the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

      More information on the SDGs and how Napier Port’s Sustainability Strategy aligns to these can be found here >>
