Peril on the Sea Book



Saturday, February 27th, 1892, dawned unreasonably warm and clear. Rising early to take advantage of the fine weather, two hundred men and boys from many Trinity Bay communities left in their small punts to hunt seals on the icefield that had drifted in close to land overnight. Their hopes for a successful hunt were dashed, however, when the weather took an unexpected and severe turn for the worse. By noon a ferocious winter storm and extremely high sea had arisen, trapping many of the landsmen on the ice and forcing others to make their way to shore by rowing into the teeth of a vicious northern gale.
