Friends and family came out to show their respect for the men and women from Blaine who have been lost at sea. Visitors placed a flower in the memorial reef for each life lost.

The highly emotional service drew a large crowd of seafaring families and well-wishers.
The wreath was taken out into the bay and laid on the water in commemoration.
