October 22,1921- After a successful first season on the Grand Banks Bluenose, under Angus Walters, was ready for the 1921 Nova Scotia Elimination Trials, held off Halifax in October. It competed against the schooners Independence, J. Duffy, Canadia, Alcala, Ada R. Corkum, Donald J. Cook and Delawana, all from Lunenburg, LaHave or Shelburne—and won both Elimination Races easily, thereby becoming the challenger against the American entry in the International Trophy Race.
