Seen just below the bowsprit of Bluenose II. Lunenburg is a traditional home of the International Dory Races now only a few months away. A few hardy souls put their racing craft in the water a month ago but hauled them ashore after the exercise. Now at least a couple of these locally built craft are in the water full time.
This two-part affair starts in Gloucester, Massachusetts "Winners of these elimination races will represent Gloucester and the United States in the second half of the International Dory Race series in Lunenberg, Nova Scotia on Aug. 19." This year will mark the 55th running of these events. For more see http://www.gloucestertimes.com/sports/local_story_216143409?keyword=secondarystory
