Film of the original Nova Scotia schooner Bluenose sailing

The schooner Bluenose in flight…

A celebrated racer as well as working boat fishing the Grand Banks, she was launched at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on March 26, 1921 and sank close the Haiti in 1946. Read all about her here.

Readers on my side of the pond may be interested to know that a replica, the Bluenose II, was built in the early 1960s, and is still afloat, between refits.
