STV Fair Jeanne - History

History

Fair Jeanne began her life in the backyard of the Thomas G. Fuller, D.S.C.** M.I.D. R.C.N. She was designed and built by Capt. Fuller at his home in Britannia-on-the-Bay in Ottawa, Ontario. The keel was laid in 1978 and she was launched in 1980. Fair Jeanne was sailed by Capt. Fuller and his wife, Jeanne (now patron of Bytown Brigantine Inc.) in the Caribbean and to his old haunts in the European Seas. During the past 15 years, the ship has logged over 150,000 miles (240,000 km) in service.

The Fuller Family founded Bytown Brigantine Foundation in 1984 utilizing Fair Jeanne's sister ship, the STV Black Jack, whose port is the Britannia Yacht Club. After 14 years of faithful service to the family as a yacht, Fair Jeanne was brought into sail-training service as well, allowing Bytown Brigantine Inc. to expand its program and offer offshore sail training for youth between the ages of 15-18.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    It gives me the greatest pleasure to say, as I do from the bottom of my heart, that never in the history of the country, in any crisis and under any conditions, have our Jewish fellow citizens failed to live up to the highest standards of citizenship and patriotism.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    The greatest horrors in the history of mankind are not due to the ambition of the Napoleons or the vengeance of the Agamemnons, but to the doctrinaire philosophers. The theories of the sentimentalist Rousseau inspired the integrity of the passionless Robespierre. The cold-blooded calculations of Karl Marx led to the judicial and business-like operations of the Cheka.
    Aleister Crowley (1875–1947)

    Well, for us, in history where goodness is a rare pearl, he who was good almost takes precedence over he who was great.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
