Summer 2017 Voyages

Sailing Adventure Programs

Sail training aboard the Fair Jeanne…imagine hoisting the sails, steering the ship, climbing the masts, standing a watch and making lifelong friends along the way. You don’t need to know a thing about sailing – we’ll show you the ropes!

You’ll gain confidence, learn how to work in a team, and have the most thrilling adventures. This is more than a summer camp for teens, many of the kids who sail with us come back year after year, joining our crew to teach the next generation of would-be sailors.

All Fair Jeanne sail trainees require a valid passport.

THE TALL SHIP


Fair Jeanne

The 110-foot Fair Jeanne has sailed more than 150,000 nautical miles in the Great Lakes, the St. Lawrence Seaway, the Atlantic and the Caribbean. She sleeps 40, has 10 sails and masts that soar 80 feet into the air. The Fair Jeanne was built in Captain Fuller’s backyard and was launched in 1982.

Adventure

80 feet above the waterline furling a sail, or feeling the bow spray from 100 feet away – we’ve got adventure in spades.

Confidence

You’ve learned how to set the sails, how to navigate in rough water and you’ve learned to trust in yourself.

Leadership

Stay for a longer voyage as an Officer-in-Training – you may find yourself leading a group of your peers.

Teamwork

The only way a tall ship sails is through teamwork. Try hauling up the main by yourself and you’ll quickly learn what we mean!

Seamanship

We all start knowing next to nothing about traditional tall ship sailing; it’s all part of the adventure. You’ll learn quickly!

Friendship

Close quarters, unexpected challenges and shared adventures are the recipe for life-long friendships.

I had a great time aboard the Black Jack! Will definitely recommend Bytown Brigantine to all my friends!
