Posted by Tall Ships America on September 13, 2016
We’re featuring our fleet of vessels that you can see, hear, and touch when they come to your host city this summer as part of the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Great Lakes 2016 Race Series.
Where you’ll find her
Ottawa, ON. This summer Fair Jeanne will be in the following TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® ports: Redpath Waterfront Festival Toronto, presented by PortsToronto; Tall Ship Celebration: Bay City; Tall Ships® Brockville
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”.
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.
