Seafaring Sunday: Northwest Passage
July 17, 1577: Martin Frobisher, commanding Gabriel and in search of a Northwest passage to the Pacific, drops anchor in what he will name Frobisher Bay and is the first European to set foot on Canada's Baffin Island. Frobisher will later sail with Drake and command vessels against the Armada of Spain.
