FAIR JEANNE & the "lost channel".

Brigantine FAIR JEANNE is the 1st square-rigger to navigate the "lost channel" in the 1,000 island region of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 249 years ! In 1769, a long-boat of 14 men was lowered into the "lost channel" from the H.M.S. ONONDAGA, and were never found. The event took place on August 14th, 1760.
