St. Lawerence II
The S.T.V. St. Lawrence II is a custom built sailing ship that serves as a platform for immersive outdoor adventure programs. The Ship was built by Kingston shipyards in 1953 to a design by Francis MacLachlan and Mike Eames. The ship was designed with a level of complexity built in which requires a high degree of teamwork. Small as she is, this design has proven to be extraordinarily seaworthy and handy – not to mention fairly quick.
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.
