A summer sailing camp for
youth aboard the Tall Ship St. Lawrence II, sailing from Kingston, Ontario!
"Brigantine Incorporated is a registered charity dedicated to empowering, connecting, and inspiring youth through the challenges of sailing a traditionally rigged ship. Through experiential learning and skills development we build confidence, strength, and leadership in our ship's crew. The unique shipboard environment we provide forges friendships, teamwork, and a sense of responsibility to the community. Our sail training programs broaden horizons and inspire our youth to be a positive force in the world.
Brigantine Incorporated is also committed to preserving rare maritime skills and heritage, promoting respect for our natural environment, and providing the training and experience required to become an outstanding professional mariner."
NEWS & EVENTS!
Winter Program Update:
The youth crew and volunteers are working hard on continuous improvements to the ship. Currently we are working on block inspection & rebuilding, spar inspection & repair, improving the wiring of the emergency back-up power supply, "Cape Horning" the skylights, and Ed just installed a much improved high bilge alarm for the Engine Room (it's really loud and has a big red light).
