Come sailing on a tall ship with us! For over 25 years, Bytown Brigantine has offered young people between the ages of 12-18 the chance to sail aboard the SV Fair Jeanne on the Great Lakes or aboard the SV Black Jack, Ottawa’s Signature Vessel, on the Ottawa River. Voyages range from 1 to 3 weeks in length. For those of you signing on for longer voyages aboard the SV Fair Jeanne you will have the opportunity to earn an Ontario Secondary School credit as we are also an independent high school, Bytown Brigantine Academy. Under the guidance of our enthusiastic, certified crew, you will work together, learning to steer, raise the sails, stand a watch, and navigate. Explore the towns and rivers through which you sail aboard our registered and inspected Canadian vessels with a crew to youth ratio of 1:3.
New this summer, we are offering a one-day Introduction to Tall Ship Sailing program. This opportunity is for the young and the young at heart. We welcome anyone, from 12 years of age and up, youth and adults, mothers and daughters, dads and lads, families and friends, who want to become sail trainees and learn the ropes for a day. All Day Sails begin and end at the Aquatarium Dock in Brockville, ON. See our website for details.
Come explore with us a new way of learning; through adventure, challenge and fun!
