Sailing on Lake Ontario and the Thousand Islands – Ages 15-19
Set sail aboard the 110' brigantine Fair Jeanne for any of the exciting voyages. Our young trainees discover the adventure and thrill of working as a team to meet the challenge of sailing an authentic tall ship. Throughout each voyage regular instruction and shipboard routine will be maintained. You may find yourself hoisting the sails, steering the ship, standing anchor watches and helping cook meals too! Perhaps you’ll climb high up into the rigging to furl the sails or out onto the bowsprit to free a sail–something new all the time. Trainees live and eat aboard the ship while sailing to various ports and anchorages in Canada and the U.S. Most importantly, trainees share this great adventure with a crew of new friends!
Fair Jeanne has a full-time crew of 6, and trainees number between 18 and 24. Most of the voyages on Fair Jeanne operate out of Kingston or Brockville, Ontario and involve passage through part of the St. Lawrence Seaway and Thousand Islands area. Technical specifications about the ships are found on the Fleet page.
Again this year, we are offering an Ontario High School credit on Voyage B and partnering with Brockville Dive Centre and 1000 Islands Kayaking. You can earn a PADI open water certification and your national level kayaking certification as you explore the 1000 Islands.
