Lunenburg: Bluenose II Nearing Re-Launch

The massive dome covering Bluenose II during it's rebuild has been completely dismantled. The temporary shelter has covered the schooner for the past two years during its restoration on the Lunenburg waterfront. Its tear down, signals a major step in the process towards re-launching the vessel. After the dome is removed, Bluenose II needs to be repositioned onto the slipway in preparation for relaunch. Further prep work and tide conditions will then play a large factor in determining when the vessel returns to the water. The schooner is expected to be completely rigged in the fall and ready for public sailing next summer. The province has yet to officially announce a launch date for Bluenose II.
