Tenacious to sail in Queen's Jubilee river pageant
Tallship Tenacious is to take part in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in London.
The 65m (213ft) square-rigged Southampton-based vessel will sail in a River Thames procession on 3 June.
As one of the largest ships in the pageant it will form part of the Avenue of Sail through which smaller vessels will pass.
The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) charity vessel is equipped to be sailed by able-bodied and disabled people.
Emma Laird, the Jubilee Sailing Trust, said: "We very much wanted to be part of the pageant as our trust was actually founded as a result of a grant from the Queen's Silver Jubilee trust in 1978."
The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant is a 1,000 boat flotilla reflecting Britain's maritime heritage.
It will feature a seven-mile procession of vessels including Dunkirk little ships, historic vessels, steam boats and tugs, and passenger ships.
