In anticipation for our Annual Conference this week, we figured we would feature a Canadian Flagged Tall Ship as a tip of the hat to our host city, Quebec. Time to learn a little about Bluenose II

Where you’ll find the ship

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

Fun Fact

There are four completely different local namesake theories explaining why the vessel is called Bluenose… Check them out here to see which theory you believe!

The backstory

While the original Bluenose launched in 1921, Bluenose II first launched in 1963 after being constructed from the same plans of the original and even the same boat builders. She serves as a goodwill ambassador for the Province of Nova Scotia, participating in tall ship events throughout the Western Hemisphere. She continues to sail in the tradition of the original vessel, encouraging all of their officers and deckhands to enhance their skills and certifications.

Who Sails

Individuals and groups


Tune in next Tuesday to see what Tall Ship will be featured next!
