Eighty years ago when men went to sea in wooden ships, she was the Queen of the North Atlantic. The Bluenose was the fastest deep water fishing schooner ever to sail the Grand Banks. For nearly two decades she dominated the International Fishermen's Trophy races. Even well past her prime, waterlogged by 18 fishing seasons and battered by the fiercest Atlantic storms, Bluenose could not be beaten against a younger schooner, winning a world record for speed. This is the story, not only of the Queen but of her Captain, a man named Angus Walters. For 22 years they faced every new challenge together.--Container.

I found "The Queen and the Skipper" to be a fascinating watch. I had no previous knowledge about this Canadian symbol and highly recommend learning about this piece of Canadian history.
