Since 2010 I have been raising money for the Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) to support the operation of its two accessible tall ships - Tenacious (the largest wooden tall sailing ship in the world built during the last century) and Lord Nelson.

Check out my YouTube channel  to see what tall ship sailing JST-style is like. Both ships are uniquely designed to allow people with various physical disabilities to be fully involved in the challenges of sailing the ships. I am passionate about the work this charity does, and when I have sailed with the JST I have seen at first hand the miraculous effects the experience has on people.

I am raising money, awareness and possible crew members for the JST by presenting my 'Songs of the Sea' show at community groups, companies and corporate, rehabilitation facilities, churches, WIs, clubs - anywhere! My show comprises photos and films from my trips, interspersed with live performances of songs about the sea from the likes of Rod Stewart, the Beach Boys and Bobby Darin as well as folk Songs, shanties and crooners. It lasts from 45 minutes to 90 minutes (2 x 45) to suit you, and there is plenty of time to ask questions.

"All the ladies thought your presentation was fabulous, we all had a wonderful time."  Stoke D'Abernon WI, May 2019

"Many thanks Steve for an excellent and entertaining evening."  Commodore, Guildford Coastal Cruising Club, Dec. 2018

"Thank you so much for your session on Tenacious and all things nautical on Monday. We all learnt a lot I think, and were thoroughly entertained too. The trips you do look amazing and are inspiring - you clearly love being involved with such a fantastic charity."  TALK Surrey Walton Branch.

"Steve was a delightful speaker who had everyone joining in with his songs and pulling on ropes.  His photos and movies showed how a wheelchair can be hoisted up to the crow's nest, to the great delight of the passenger!"  Epsom and Ewell WI

Please support me by 'liking' my Facebook page where there is lots more information and pictures. Also please check out if you would like to make a donation or pay a fee for my show. Thank you!
