HMCS Whitehorse Assists Pleasure craft off of B.C

Late last week, HMCS Whitehorse responded to a distress call from the Amora Mia, a 75-foot pleasure craft on June 10, 2015.

The Amora Mia was adrift without propulsion after a reported engine room fire. The four crew of the Amora Mia were brought aboard HMCS Whitehorse for safety reasons.

HMCS Whitehorse was conducting coastal operations, including surveillance off the coast of BC when it responded. The Joint Rescue Coordination Center (JRCC) Victoria was also included in the operation. HMCS Whitehorse towed Amora Mia to Port McNeill, where it was handed over to an inshore rescue boat.
