Ten years ago today, Angie and Beatrice departed for a planned navigation and towing training exercise with fellow volunteers from RCMSAR Station 12 Halfmoon Bay passing through the rapids of Skookumchuck Narrows. Angie and Beatrice’s lives were lost that day when the training exercise suddenly turned tragic.

No amount of sorrow or words can express just how much they are missed.

Today, local RCMSAR stations from across the province are honouring the lives of these two incredible women who were mothers, sisters, cousins, friends and valued crew members.

A moment of silence was held this morning at RCMSAR’s Headquarters in East Sooke which included the Assistant Commissioner of the Canadian Coast Guard, Derek Moss, RCMSAR CEO, Bill Riggs and staff.

Never Forgotten: June 3, 2012 – June 3, 2022
