Your Support is Appreciated!

For over 30 years, Bytown Brigantine has been an organization for youth, run by youth. Our program dates back to one young teenager who stubbornly believed that he could take a lonely and unused sailing ship, refit the vessel into active duty and then sail it to Quebec City with a youth crew to participate in an international tall ship event.

Our founder, Simon Fuller, stood before the tall ship Black Jack as a teenager and dreamed of adventure under sail. He believed that young people, with the right support, determination, practice, and resolve could achieve the loftiest of goals and the highest of responsibilities, regardless of age.


Donate Today!

Donations and fundraising events ensure the Captain Thomas & Jeanne Fuller bursary fund is available to families who would like their child to experience a unique overnight summer camp.  We never leave a young person ashore for lack of funds.

Each year, BBI hosts various fundraising events such as the annual Charity Golf Tournament and Potato Smash. The proceeds raised directly fund our bursary program which enables young people of limited financial means to participate in our programs.

If you would like to make a donation 100% of your donation is directed to supporting youth to sail aboard. You can also make a donation of securities or mutual funds here. Bytown Brigantine issues charitable tax receipts for all donations and is a Canadian registered charity: 118822253RR0001
