The voluntary slowdown at Swiftsure Bank began on August 1, and since that time 159 large commercial vessels, departing both Canadian and US ports, have transited outbound through the slowdown area. Of those vessels, 81% were able to transit the slowdown area within 1 knot of speed through water targets showing excellent participation rates so far. The voluntary slowdown in Haro Strait and Boundary Pass continues to show high rates of participation, and has maintained a pilot-reported cumulative participation rate of 93% over the first nine weeks of the slowdown initiative.
