Neptune II – 1929

Today at the Barbour Living Heritage village we remember the brave souls and the remarkable story of Capt. Job Barbour and his crew of the Neptune II as we mark the 88th Anniversary of  48 days adrift!!

This is the story of a voyage of the 3-masted schooner “Neptune 2” in 1929. Setting out from St. John’s, N.F. the intended trip to Bonavista Bay should have taken about 12 hours, but 48 days later, she arrived off the west coast of Scotland, having been literally blown across the Atlantic.
