History –Mimi Jane is inspired by Brittany’s traditional sailing work boats, more precisely the tuna fishing dundees from the French town of Concarneau. Mimi Jane was a girl’s dream, and the dream came true after years of work building her boat in South Mountain, Ontario. The trip to Brockville for our festival will be Mimi Jane’s maiden voyage.
