History:

Launched in 1963 from Lunenburg's Smith & Rhuland boatyard, Bluenose II is owned by the Province of Nova Scotia and operated by a preservation trust. The Lunenburg-based schooner was built from the same plans as the Bluenose and by many of the same men. The original Bluenose is Canada's most famous sailing vessel which in the 1920s and 1930s won many races against American fishing schooners. Today, each summer, Captain Phillip Watson still gives public cruises and travels to special events all over including but not limited to the Atlantic and the Great Lakes. The crew says serving on the Blusnose II instills a sense of pride and responsibility. Embodying traditional skills of seamanship, the crew consists of five officers, a chief cook and twelve deckhands.
