Description

The original Bluenose was built in Lunenburg's legendary Smith and Rhuland Shipyard to compete for the International Fisherman's Trophy. In October 1921, the Bluenose won her first race, and for the next 17 years, she defeated all contenders. In 1928, the Bluenose defeated the Thebaud in the final race series and was named Queen of the North Atlantic fishing fleet. The Bluenose had become the pride of Nova Scotians, and in 1937, the Canadian dime was changed to include an image of the mighty ship.

In 1942, despite the efforts of Bluenose Master, Captain Angus J. Walters, and others, the vessel was sold to the West Indian Trading Company and left Nova Scotia. Four years later, the Bluenose struck a Haitian reef and sank.

In 1963, the Bluenose II was built from identical plans as the Bluenose. She was built in the same shipyard of Smith and Rhuland by some of the same men who had constructed the original.
