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.
