The schooner Bluenose
has a very special place in the history of
navigation and yachting. Built to fish off the Newfoundland
coast, the ship soon turned out to be such a fast sailer that she
won all the great classical regattas along the USA's Eastern
coast. She was built in Nova Scotia in 1921, and shipwrecked
near Haiti in 1946. A true copy - Bluenose II
- was launched in
The Bluenose II Preservation Trust Webpage.
