Generations of Atlantic Canadians have grown up with stories of the Original Bluenose Nova Scotia, her Captain Angus Walters and Bluenose II.

The vessel became the world's most famous Nova Scotian fishing schooner racing victorious - and undefeated - into history and legends.

A glorious reign as Queen of the North Atlantic began with her launching from Lunenburg's Smith and Rhuland boatyard on March 26, 1921. It tragically ended a quarter century later.

In 1963, Bluenose II was launched from the same shipyard, built by many of the men who had worked on the Original Bluenose.

Interesting Bluenose II facts

  • Home port: Lunenburg, Nova Scotia
     
  • Bluenose II is acknowledged to have the largest working mainsail in the world. It measures 4,150 square feet (386 m2). The total sail area measures over 11,000 square feet (1036 m2) and is 43.5 m (143 feet) in length.
     
  • All crew members live onboard during the ship's six-month season.
     
  • In 1971, the Oland family of Halifax sold Bluenose II to the government of Nova Scotia for $1.
     
  • Since 1937, the image of Original Bluenose has graced the Canadian dime (10 cent piece).
     
  • In 1995, Original Bluenose and her captain, Angus Walters, were inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame.
     
  • Nova Scotia's Bluenose II and the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic is proudly operated by the Lunenburg Marine Museum Society.
