Bytown Brigantine Tall Ships Adventure welcomes youth ages 12-18 the opportunity to sail off on the most unique summer programming available, an adventure of a lifetime. Our summer camps and voyages give youth the opportunity to challenge themselves, learn new skills and meet lots of new friends.   Sound great to you but you don’t have kids?  Consider one of our shoulder season adult voyages!

At Black Jack Island Adventure Camp youth 12-14 join the crew and sail the 87’ Black Jack on the Ottawa River. Chart your way to adventure on Alexandria Island. Haul the line, take your turn at the helm and climb the masts to set and douse the sails. Take a well-deserved break and cool off at anchor by swinging from the Tarzan rope into the river.  Under sail, oar or motor, take command of one of our 27’ navy whalers to explore the area around our home base, Alexandria Island. Not sailing? Other challenges await you on the island: compete in teams in island-wide games, raft building, low ropes course and the Tall Ships Olympics. Reflecting on the day, relax around the campfire and drift off sleep on in your bunk on a logging-era bunk barge. Camps are 5-10 days in length and are offered in a co-ed or all girl format.
Fair Jeanne Voyages – Sailing the mighty St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario, trainees 13-18 years old have the opportunity to work alongside crew to sail this 110’ tall ship. Casting off from Brockville or Kingston, Ontario youth can come aboard for a 5-day voyage of discovery, a multi-week adventure or even a 21-day voyage offering options for a High School Credit, Flat Water Kayaking Level 1 or PADI Open Water Scuba Certification.  The adventure is yours to build.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.
