Bluenose II, Replica of the Original Schooner - Lunenberg, Nova Scotia, Canada 9-1-97
The replica was built in July 1963. Lunenberg's shipyards produced many swift and able fishing schooners, none more famous than the Bluenose built in 1921. It was the undefeated champion of the N. Atlantic fishing fleet and winner of 4 international schooner races. Her fame won her a place on the back of the Canadian dime.
