Fun Facts

Designed and built in 1982 by the late Captain Thomas G. Fuller, who was one of  Canada’s most decorated WWII naval war heroes, earning the name “Pirate of the Adriatic”.

The Backstory
Originally sailed as a private yacht, Fair Jeanne is now in service as a sail training vessel for Bytown Brigantine, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering leadership, confidence, and self reliance in youth through the adventure of square-rig sailing.  During the summer months, she provides voyages for youth 13-19 years old and is also a floating high school.
