Join the crew & learn to sail a tall ship
Ever wondered what it was like to sail a square-rigged tall ship (that’s a brigantine by the way)? This is your chance to experience the most exhilarating and educational adventure of your life, aboard the 110′ Fair Jeanne!
You can take a turn at the helm, help in hoisting, trimming and lowering the sails, chart a course, keep the ship’s log and join in all the on-board fun.
Are you up for it?
It’s a bit like a working holiday with time to appreciate the scenery and all the ports have to offer. Life aboard can be physically demanding (steep stairs, moving deck, and climbing aloft for those who are willing). You’re expected to help out with the day-to-day operation of the vessel and some light chores. But the more you do, the more you’ll learn and the more you will enjoy!
Accommodations are on the spartan side: 6-8 bunks in a room and shared heads (toilets). For a little more privacy, upgrade to a single, room with 2 bunks or quad.
