In 1998 I sailed down the Inside Passage from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy on Vancouver Island on board Queen of the North. We then sailed in Spirit of British Columbia from Swartz Bay to Tsawassen, just south of Vancouver. Queen of the North subsequently sank in the Passage when the personnel on watch missed a turn to port, sending her at full speed onto the rocks. There was some loss of life. There was a degree of scandal evident in the results of the enquiry, in that two of the crew on watch had allegedly been recently romantically linked.
Thank you for your picture - it reminded me of a great holiday. Do you know if the vessels illustrated sailed the Inside Passage?
Best wishes,
Dave
