A Tancook schooner races home before the ever encroaching storm. These boats are built very similarly or closely related in style to the Bluenose, therefore well known for their speed and sharp tacking manoeuvrability. These schooners were hand-built and were widely used in the Maritimes for the off-shore Cod fishery before its collapse.
