Welcome Home HMCS REGINA / Bienvenue NCSM REGINA

A Message from the Commanding Officer, Cdr L Creasy

HMCS Regina will be entering Esquimalt Harbour on Sunday September 27, 2020 at approximately 10:00am.  The goal is to have the crew able to leave the ship and depart the Dockyard at approx. 12:30pm.  Loved ones are advised that they may use the two lower parking lots just outside the main gate of Dockyard.  Friends and family are asked to respect the guidelines of social distancing and to remain in their cars until met by their military member.  There will be no access to Dockyard for friends, family or guests. 

While Regina remains the Ready Duty Ship (crew are to remain in the local area and are subject to recall) it is my intention to grant 2 “Sunday Routine” days for Monday and Tuesday with the team coming back Wednesday to continue our preparations for our Short Work Period.  Post-deployment leave (and annual leave) will follow Regina’s docking on October 8, 2020.

Many thanks to our families for their support and we look forward to seeing you all very soon!


L.T. Creasy, Cdr, CO HMCS Regina

Message du commandant, Capf L Creasy

Le NCSM Regina entrera au port d’Esquimalt le dimanche 27 septembre 2020 vers 10 h. L’objectif est que l’équipage puisse quitter le navire à env. 12h30. Les proches sont informés qu’ils peuvent utiliser les deux terrains de stationnement juste à l’extérieur de l’entrée principale de Dockyard. Les amis et la famille sont priés de respecter les règles de distanciation sociale et de rester dans leur voiture jusqu’à ce qu’ils soient rencontrés par leur militaire. Il n’y aura pas d’accès à Dockyard pour les amis, la famille ou les invités.

Bien que Regina reste le navire de service prêt (l’équipage doit rester dans la zone locale et est sujet à rappel), j’ai l’intention d’accorder 2 jours de «routine du dimanche» pour lundi et mardi, l’équipe revenant mercredi pour continuer nos préparatifs pour notre période de travail courte. Le congé post-déploiement (et le congé annuel) suivront l’accostage de Regina le 8 octobre 2020.

Un grand merci à nos familles pour leur soutien et nous avons hâte de vous voir tous très bientôt!

À votre santé,

L.T. Creasy, Capf, Commandant du NCSM Regina
