It is a pleasure to invite you to a presentation of the new cultural expedition route ?In The Footsteps of Basque Whalers" by 5A incentive planners at Eusko Etxea of New York on Saturday April 30th at 7:30 pm. Following the presentation there will be a reception with pintxos and sparkling cider. This is a cost free event and open to the public.
"In The Footsteps of Basque Whalers? is a unique and exceptional expedition that will open a new and unprecedented cultural route that commemorates the history of Basque whalers is Newfoundland and Labrador. Four decades ago in the frigid waters off Red Bay, the Canadian Robert Grenier and the Basque Manu Izaguirre discovered the remains of the Nao San Juan sunk there in 1565 and in the process developed the methods and processes that have since become the international standard for scientific research in subaquatic archeology. This discovery, and their work, provided important evidence of historical Basque culture and valuable insight into some of the earliest history of Europeans in the Americas. The expedition will take place aboard the ship Ocean Endeavour and will contain an extensive program that combines adventure, history and science with the natural beauty of one of the most pristine landscapes on earth, the Atlantic Coast of Canada.
Hope to see you on April 30th.
