The Kenya Jacaranda, an important and beautiful historic sailing ship, needs your help and support.
Built in 1925 as a Brixham sailing trawler, 'KJ' has spent the last 50 years providing sailing experience to young people. She has a proud history which includes the last-ever salvage tow by a commercial sailing vessel under sail and winning the coveted King George V Cup at Brixham Regatta in 1936.
Alas, the passage of time has taken its toll and the original trustees have now transferred ownership and responsibility after many years at the helm.
There is a new and exciting plan to preserve and restore this historic vessel and KJ has been moved to a new home at Heritage Marine on the River Blackwater in Maldon, Essex.
