*Take the helm and hoist the sails aboard Fair Jeanne. The vessel is one of three youth sailing vessels offering tall ship adventures to the public on June 28. Sail-training experiences will also be available on Playfair and St. Lawrence II. This is the only opportunity for visitors to have a sail-away experience. The ships will set sail from Harbour Square Park at 4:00 pm. There are a limited number of berths on each ship. Tickets can be purchased here.
Fair Jeanne will be docked in Harbour Square Park.
The brigantine was designed and built between 1979 and 1982 by the Pirate of the Adriatic, Captain Thomas G. Fuller, a Canadian naval war hero. Captain Fuller named his ship after his wife, Jeanne. The two sailed together aboard Fair Jeanne, travelling as far as the Adriatic Sea. Today it’s a training vessel for Bytown Brigantine, a local Ottawa charity that works to instill confidence and leadership in youth through square-rigged sailing.
