The Arctic schooner Bowdoin is scheduled to visit L'Anse au Loup in August as part of the 2009 Bartlett Celebrations. Celebrating Bartlett 2009, a project of the Historic Sites Association of Newfoundland and Labrador, will create greater awareness of Captain Bob Bartlett (1875-1946) of Brigus. Bartlett was an internationally renowned Arctic explorer and one of the greatest historical figures in Canadian history. Details about the celebrations in L'Anse au Loup will be available in January.
