The Lord Nelson was two years in the making. Commissioned by the Jubilee Sailing Trust she would be the 'flagship' for the Jubilee Sailing Trust's mission to enable people with disabilities to sail.

She is due to berth opposite Quayside Plaza, South Quay at 1pm on April 6.

The Jubilee Sailing Trust is an international, UN accredited charity operating the world's only fully accessible tall ships.

For the next three months, Lord Nelson will travel around the UK and with crews featuring 209 employees from Barclays, sailing side-by-side with 209 people with disabilities from over 50 separate charities.

The ship is custom built and uniquely designed to enable people of all physical abilities to sail side by side on equal terms.
