June 23 - June 29
June 23 – 29, Twillingate Newfoundland and Blanc Sablon, Quebec (near Labrador). Mike McNamara writes, “I have beento Twillingate and it really is the iceberg capital of the world.” Twillingate is a 2-hour drive north from Gander which has good FBOs but no 100LL. For those without Tip Tanks, Deer Lake has fuel.
o Blanc Sablon does have 100LL. In Blanc Sablon, the Red Bay Basque Whaling Station was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in June 2013. In the 16th century, thousands of Basque whaling ships swarmed Red Bay to hunt whales and export them to Europe, and today you can walk through the whaling town of Red Bay and rewind the history.
