BC Ferries is launching a contest to name their three new intermediate class ships that are under construction.

Corrine Storey with BC Ferries says the first one completed will service the route between Comox and Powell River, and the others will be servicing the Southern Gulf Islands from Tsawwassen.

Storey says the names have to reflect the communities the ferries serve, without being too specific about geography.

Check out BC Ferries’ website for details. The contest is open until June 9th and the winner will get $500 in ferry travel vouchers.
