Bluenose II re-launch

on September 29, 2012

While the weather deterred us from attending the Bluenose II re-launch, (driving rain and winds) thousands were on hand for the 8:00 a.m. re-launch in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

Nova Scotia’s ambassador has undergone a $15.9 million restoration over two years. Ottawa covered $4.9 million with the rest coming from the Nova Scotia government. The schooner’s two masts, canvas sails and rigging will be installed over the next few months.

Here is a time lapse of the Bluenose II re-launch beginning with quieter times yesterday

This morning at 7:00 a.m.

7:30 a.m.

7:40 a.m.

And presently in Lunenburg, NS harbour

Cheers to Nova Scotia’s sailing ambassador.  May you grace the waters for many years to come!
