Bluenose Squadron has provided safe boating education to the people of western Nova Scotia for more than four decades.    In the early years there were actually two squadrons operating in this part of Nova Scotia i.e. Fundy Squadron, which was primarily operating in the Annapolis Valley, and Bluenose Squadron which was primarily concerned with the South Shore area.  At some point these two squadrons merged to become Bluenose Squadron.  Note the following photos of the two warrants that have been issued to our Squadron over the years.  The original was issued in 1976 and the subsequent warrant is dated 1992.


This page is a first attempt to provide a little history for Bluenose Squadron.  It will be further expanded as time and resources permit.  If you were involved with either Fundy or Bluenose Squadrons in the past and wish to impart further historical information to add to this page please contact Jim Peerless, the keeper of this microsite at ss-bluenose@cps-ecp.org.      Thank you.

The original Bluenose Schooner was launched 100 years ago in March 2021!
