The Bluenose, a True Canadian Champion

 

Within two weeks of winning the 1921 International Fishermen's Race, Bluenose was already larger-than-life and well on its way to becoming a Canadian icon. At first the excitement was mostly confined to Atlantic Canada and New England, where it was understood that the victories of the early years "brought Halifax and Lunenburg, and Nova Scotia generally, to the attention of thousands of people who never before had thought of these places as anything more than names."

 

Angus Walters was hailed as "the man of the hour" and a role model everywhere for youth growing up into the seafaring life. His crew were "courageous men...identified with a great industry," and the annual races were seen as an opportunity for "international friendship" beyond the confines of Nova Scotia. Bluenose's primary role as a Grand Banks schooner was also heavily promoted, because this reinforced Nova Scotia as a continuing player in the offshore fishery, wooden shipbuilding, and international trade—at a time when the province's leadership in all three was beginning to fade.
