Description

This book documents the beautiful Tall Ship Bluenose, now a sailing ambassador for the province of Nova Scotia, and tells the dramatic story of the battles and triumphs of original Bluenose.

The original Bluenose, built in Lunenburg and launched in 1921, was designed to combine a career as a racing ship with the working role fishing the Grand Banks off Newfoundland. Its captain, Angus Walters, took Bluenose to five international sailing races, and was undefeated for seventeen years. By the 1930s, the vessel's achievements made it an icon for Nova Scotia and an important Canadian symbol.

The newly-restored replica, the Bluenose II, represents the wooden shipbuilding achievements and the dory-based cod fishery traditions of Nova Scotia. This book offers an interpretive guide of the ship and its complex traditional equipment. It also tells the story of the original Bluenose, with many historic photographs of the ship and its crew aboard the most famous Tall Ship in Canada in this souvenir of a vessel whose history and allure continues to captivate to this day.

Editorial Review

"Zwicker's photography is stunning and Kaizer's text provides enough detail to satisfy mariners while remaining accessible for those who couldn't tell you the difference between a sheet and a boom."
