The Fraser Lifeboat conducted a safety patrol upriver to New Westminster. We transited via Annicis Channel and were going to lower our mast but the swing bridge saw us coming and swung the bridge. This is the first time we have fully gone through this channel. On our way up we had a large deep sea following us, giving great practice to our radar/nav station crew. Lots of commercial vessel activity on the river. On the way back we sailed into Ladner Harbour and then back along the float homes to Sea Reach and eventually back to Steveston.
