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 1921, and shipwrecked near Haiti in 1946. A true copy - Bluenose II - was launched in 1964.
(Please note our 600 Bluenose II is a smaller 1 : 100 scale version as is an easier and less costly replica of this famous vessel.)
