Gloucester, MA and Lunenburg, NS have maintained a friendly rivalry for centuries.

The two communities competed for cod on the Grand Banks, raced their best schooners for the International Fishermen’s Cup, and the competition remains strong to this day with the International Dory Races.

In keeping with this tradition, we sail down for the Gloucester Schooner Festival whenever we can to visit our historic sister city and meet the many Bay Staters with ties to Nova Scotia.

Thanks to Mark Krasnow Photography for this spectacular shot of Bluenose II sailing at the 2018 Gloucester Schooner Festival. We look forward to being able to visit again!
