As part of the ship's scheduled appearance, school groups are invited to visit the ship at the Thousand Islands Regional Dock, free of charge, on Friday, June 15 between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m.  "The folks at Bytown Brigantine, operators of the ship, understand the importance of educating children," said Folsom. "Their outstanding crew and staff will be sure to engage with those children that visit the ship and ensure they leave with a better understanding of sailing and life on the water." The second-annual festival officially kicks-off on the evening of Thursday, June 14. A number of antique boats from the Antique Boat Museum, along with Clayton's fireboat Last Chance will take part in the Grand Arrival of tall ship Fair Jeanne around 6 p.m. Those school groups looking to visit the ship should email their school name, potential number of students and contact information to theshipwatcher@yahoo.com.
