We were able to board the Bluenose 11 but there was about a 40 mph wind coming off the harbour so we didn't sail.It was a nice tour. I don't know much about sailing so most of what they said went over my head.

Although I was not able to sail this trip I enjoyed visiting tied up at Lunenburg wharf. I have sailed on it twice before. Ship has been refurbished. Crew are very friendly and knowledgeable. Look forward to getting to sail on it again soon.

I had a lovely little tour of this second Bluenose while in Baddeck, Nova Scotia. Boat has undergone a fabulous refurbishment and is a most interesting attraction.

After learning about it at the museum, it now has some meaning for me, but other than that, it didn't impress me too much.
