The Bluenose schooner was launched at Lunenburg. Designed by William J. Roué, it was intended for both fishing and racing. It sailed under the command of Captain Angus Walters during the 1920s and 1930s. (Also see Angus Walters, August 11, 1968; Bluenose, October 26, 1938.) The vessel became a provincial icon for Nova Scotia. While hauling freight near Haiti, the schooner hit a reef and sank in 1946. A replica of the ship, Bluenose II, was launched in 1963. (Also see Bluenose II, July 24, 1963.). (Photo credit: Launch of the Bluenose . N.S. Archives).
