DescriptionThis timeless Starling Burgess design has provided over 75 years of exciting racing for generations of sailors. If you have ever stood around a yacht club bar post race, you’ll likely hear sailors complaining about the conditions and their handicap or someone else’s. That all noted, for those brave enough to lose the bar side excuse — “that boat has a sweet handicap” or “today was not our condition” — they go one-design Racing. From its inception in 1946 when the first 12 wooden Bluenoses were built in East Chester to WJ Roue’s design (designer of the famous fishing schooner Bluenose) to the most recent racing season and class championship, the 23-foot Bluenose has been enjoyed by sailors of all ages and skill levels. About three years ago, North Sails developed a new, faster set of sails as the original pattern (the one-design sail plan) had gone untweaked for decades. Below in our directory you will find detailed description and information of 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 model plus photos, reviews, specifications, prices, charters and everything else you need to know about this fantastic boat for sale.


Search Sacs Marine directory for pontoon boats, fishing boats , aluminium boats, bass boats, speed boats, silboats and luxury yachts for sale. Such is the life of the PHRF or IRC racer.  Despite attempts of rule writers, it’s difficult to capture the speed potential of a variety of designs across varying windspeeds.
Today the Bluenose class races either “white sail” or with spinnaker, but I can assure you there is very little difference in the competitiveness of the racers. On a Wednesday night in Chester almost 30 boats started a “white sail” windward leeward two times around race. Contact Atlantic 30 Dealers, Brokers and Manufacturers directly and find a large selection of pontoon boats, aluminium boats, fishing boats , bass boats, speed boats and yachts for sale on Sacs Marine! We call this “handicap” racing, and for as long as sailors have been racing different boats against each other, there has been grumbling.


As I looked around the fleet I saw former world champions, former America’s Cup sailors, former national champs, grandparents, junior sailors, families and friends all on the same race course. As I looked at the finish order I realized that despite the “who’s who” that were out there that night — a smart sailing family, a grandparent, a local sailor that hits the last shift —, had just as much chance of winning as anybody.
We finished 17th out of 28 boats that night and my America’s Cup buddy was 8th but there were grins, smiles and lots of good natured fun all over the water post race. Like lottery tickets — but with better odds — if you race enough races, you will ultimately grab first place.
