Bluenose II (HPS/B600)
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 l921, and shipwrecked near Haiti in 1946.
A true copy - Bluneose II - was launched in l964
