In the mid 1960?s George McVay of Mahone Bay, NS under license with designer Roue began manufacturing a fiberglass version of the Bluenose Class Sloop.
The Bluenose fleet is alive and thriving to this day with an active fleet in Chester, NS which can bring anywhere from 15 to 30 boats to the start line.
