Sailing on the TS Playfair with BRIGS is an experience like no other. From the moment you step onboard, you are a member of the crew. An active and thrilling experience from day one, from hauling on the lines, to steering the ship, you are vital. Onboard, you will learn that teamwork is an essential part of life, as every effort onboard the TS Playfair is a team effort. 

A normal day onboard is more than just sailing! Activities during your voyage will include swimming, singing, campfires, and exploring ports and anchorages throughout Ontario

By the end of the voyage, you will know the fundamentals of how to sail a Tall Ship and be certified as a BRIGS "lead hand'.

Join us for an epic adventure on our last crossing of Georgian Bay. Visit the islands and hidden gems of the North Channel before crossing back into Lake Huron to experience open water sailing. Our destinations are always weather dependent but we can expect to visit places like Lake Topaz or Bridal Veil Falls, or even circumnavigate Manitoulin Island if the conditions are right. The voyage ends with a warm welcome at the Marine Heritage festival in beautiful Kincardine. By the end of this voyage, participants will have the skills to take on a significant degree of independence and responsibility in sailing the ships.

In the final weeks of the summer, we’ll enjoy some last days of sailing on the open waters of Lake Huron. Leaving from Kincardine, we’ll set sail to head south towards the mouth of the St. Clair river. After a few days out on the open lake with a few stops at ports along the eastern coast, we’ll take on the St. Clair river. Learn to navigate the seaway as we pass below impressive illuminated bridges and salute the cargo ships that pass us by. Finally as we exit the Detroit River - our sights set on Pelee Island and then the quaint town of Port Stanley.
