Ships to Shore Steveston 2013


After walking around the Salmon Festival, we headed off to the river side to see the tall ships at Imperial Landing! This is the third year in a row that the ships have come to dock at Richmond's Steveston Village. It was a beautiful day and we got to board the ships and explore! I wish I could see the ships with their sails up one day! They'd look magnificent!

The majestic and historic schooner Adventuress is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year! It's home port is in Port Townsend, Washington. She is a National Historic Landmark and is used for non-profit educational programs to increase awareness of the majesty and vulnerability of Puget Sound.

The HMCS Oriole is Canadian Navy's sail training vessel and longest-serving commissioned ship. Her home port is in Esquimalt, BC

Mycia is from Port Townsend, Washington and is a fishing schooner. Didn't realize I didn't take a picture of the full ship!

Gaia lives in Vancouver, BC at Garden Bay, Pender Harbour! It was originally built as a sailing trawler without an engine for North Sea fishing and has been around since World War II!

P6-19 is a Navy Aircraft Rescue Vessel built in 1943 by the US Navy.

The P-619 was equipped with .50 calibre machine guns and mark 6 depth charges for anti- submarine work!

B.R. Hastings is a 5 ton rigid hulled inflatable boat. It's home is Richmond, BC and the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCMSAR) uses it to respond to distress situations around the Fraser River and the Strait of Georgia.

Cute little pirate ship!

I would love to get a boat someday. My family goes boating all of the time so having one of our own would be great. I think if we did get a boat, we would get an inflatable one as opposed to the one in your pictures.
