2017 Voyage Registration
Crew the Fair Jeanne on a Canada 150 Adventure
Bytown Brigantine Canada 150 Tall Ships Adventure
Celebrate Canada 150 with RDV2017 and an Atlantic Canada sailing adventure.
From RDV2017 in Quebec City, Fair Jeanne begins the Guest Ports Programme sailing from Quebec City to Atlantic Canada and on to New York City. At 110′ she is small enough that when you step aboard as a trainee you become an active & integral part of the crew. You will haul the lines, take the helm, climb aloft to unfurl the sails; the sail training adventure is yours.
A valid passport is required. Ports subject to change based on program needs. Ask about car pooling and group travel options.
