  • Interpersonal skills: All hands on deck! Sailing a tall ship on the Great Lakes requires coordination and communication.

Sailing on the TS Playfair and STV Pathfinder 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'.

As we leave the bustling tourist town of Tobermory, we’ll have the opportunity to explore some of the North Channel’s many secluded bays and inlets. Next, we’ll set sail and make our way south into Georgian Bay, stopping in at ports and anchorages along the coast, before finally arriving in beautiful Parry Sound.

Georgian Bay Journey

Heading up Georgian Bay we will take advantage of the many beautiful anchorages and blue waters that lie in wait. After that, the ship will travel down to the 30,000 Islands located along the coast. Exploration of these islands will uncover hidden pools of water to swim in and winding hikes through the mountainous terrain. The course will finish off in the town of Penetanguishene, where we'll visit Discovery Harbour's replica ships the H.M.S Bee and the H.M.S Tecumseth.

The 30,000 Island Tour

After leaving Penetanguishene, we’ll find ourselves in the Southern end of the 30,000 Islands that form the world's largest freshwater archipelago. With the islands as our backdrop, we’ll sail south, stopping to explore anchorages along the way. Passing the famous Islands of Beausoleil, Giant’s Tomb and Christian Island, we’ll enter Nottawasaga bay to reach our destination in Collingwood.

From Collingwood, Playfair sets sail into Georgian Bay, heading north towards Killbear Provincial Park. Spend your nights at anchor, around a campfire and sailing under the stars as we sail up Georgian bay. After 6 nights out in the most beautiful waters in Ontario, Playfair sets her course back south to Owen Sound, Ontario's smallest city

Back over the Bruce

August 20 - September 27                                   Owen Sound - Kincardine                                               $1155 + HST

As Playfair begins the return journey to her home in Lake Ontario, we’ll depart Owen Sound and head north along the East coast of the Bruce Peninsula. At the top of the peninsula, we’ll make our way through Fathom 5 Marine Park, passing the famous “Flowerpots”, before altering our course south as we enter Lake Huron. After a couple days of sailing, we’ll arrive at the sheltered harbour and sandy beaches of Kincardine.

Leaving Lake Huron

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 nearly a week out on the water, 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.
