Drawing of Bluenose
The famous Bluenose was launched at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on March 26, 1921. Designed by naval architect William James Roué, the schooner first won the International Fishermen’s Trophy that same year and continued winning races throughout the 1920s and 1930s. In doing so, the schooner earned a place in the history and became a symbol of Nova Scotia and of Canada. This original drawing by Roué shows the arrangement of Bluenose’s iconic and spectacular sail plan.
