Casualty off Kiis Gwaii
The operation at the "Sinushir" has transitioned from a Search and Rescue (SAR) operation to a commercial towing operation being conducted by Foss Maritime. The commercial towing operation was being monitored closely by the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Victoria and the Canadian Coast Guard. The 10 crew members remained on board. Around 5:30 p.m. on Oct 18, the tug "Barbara Foss" reached the vessel, successfully took it under tow and began heading in a northwesterly direction, keeping a safe distance from the west coastline of Haida Gwaii. The RCAF Cormorant helicopter, RCAF Buffalo aircraft and US Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopter that were on standby at Sandspit airport have returned to their regular duties. The convoy was north of Kiis Gwaii (Langara Island) on Oct 19, travelling east at seven knots, destined for Prince Rupert. The vessels had reached the northwest end of Haida Gwaii and have begun an eastern transit into the Dixon Entrance. They were approximately 86 NM back from Prince Rupert and were expected to be in the vicinity of Prince Rupert early the next morning. They were accompanied by the "Sir Wilfred Laurier", the "Gordon Reid" has been stood down. The "Gordon Reid" had also attempted to tow the freighter away from the Haida Gwaii coast; but all attached lines eventually snapped in the heavy seas. A Canadian Armed Forces helicopter from the 442 Sqn. Comox earlier had airlifted the vessel's injured master. Photos and videos: https://www.youtube.com/w... https://www.facebook.com/...
