TALL SHIPS OF THE JUBILEE SAILING TRUST
 
I have been sailing with the Jubilee Sailing Trust since 2009. They provide the chance of experiencing tall ship sailing for people of all abilities, and these two ships have been adapted for that purpose.
I have printed two-colour linocuts of these ships in editions of 50.
