Race to Fame

  Author:   Claude Darrach    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

Race to Fame tells the story of the schooner Bluenose, unbeaten international champion of the North Atlantic. There have been other books written about the Bluenose but none so well researched from the laying of the keel through her lengthy service in the commercial fishery, her long and eventful racing career and her final resting place on a Caribbean reef. The author, a long0time crew member, was personally involved in most of the events in this most interesting book.
