A Race for Real Sailors: The Bluenose and the International Fishermen’s Cup
by McLaren, Keith
The Fishermen?s Cup series dominated sporting headlines between the two world wars. In this vibrant retelling, Keith McLaren captures the drama of each race and the personalities of the vessels that contested them: the Delawana and the Esperanto, the Columbia and the Gertrude L. Thebaud, and–dominating them all–the Bluenose and her irascible captain, Angus Walters. In addition to 51 historical photographs and five maps, the excellent presentation is rounded out by a glossary of sailing terms and an appendix of the ever-changing race rules.
