CPS Bluenose Squadron - Our Area

The Bluenose Squadron serves the legendary Southwestern Shore of Nova Scotia from St. Margaret's Bay to Liverpool and beyond.- as well as the Annapolis Valley from Digby to Annapolis Royal and as far as the Minas Basin.  Our members cruise the fabulous waters of St. Margaret's Bay, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg Bay, La Have River, Liverpool and points west.  Valley sailors brave the tides and currents of the Minas Basin, the Annapolis River and the Bay of Fundy.

Bluenose IIWe proudly take our name from the Lunenburg schooner Bluenose, the famous racing and fishing schooner whose namesake,
built from the same design, still sails out of her home port of Lunenburg.


We have a long and valiant history of providing education on safe boating, and some of the best sailing grounds in the country and in the world!

We will post announcements regarding courses and events here and in our
 e-mail newsletter.

Important Notice
All boaters in the Bluenose Squadron area (Western Nova Scotia) can now access Annapolis Royal at any time, thanks to the new floating dock and moorings launched this summer by the Annnapolis Royal Wharf Association (ARWA). 
 No more waiting for high tide to tie up at the Annapolis Royal wharf!
ARWA Guest Mooring
The floating dock makes landing a breeze, no matter what the time, and four new guest moorings out in the channel mean you'll have a place to tie up in deep water.
More information about ARWA can be found on the town website:
or contact ARWA President Adrian Nette : His Cell: 902-526-2050.
