Bluenose II and Cisne Branco

Schooner Bluenose II from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, replica of the famous Bluenose, winner of the International Fishermen's Race Series in 1922, 1923, 1931 and 1938.

Clipper Cisne Branco (White Swan) was built in Amsterdam for the Navy of Brazil and completed in 2000 for a trip from Portugal to Brazil to celebrate the European discovery of Brazil by Pedro Alvares Cabral in 1500.

This photo was taken during the 2004 Tall Ships Challenge visit to beautiful Greenport, New York.
