Message from Executive Officer

Message from HMCS REGINA’s Executive Officer LCdr Brian Henwood

On the evening of February 18, 2019  REGINA’s CH148 Cyclone helo was in the process of conducting trials with MV ASTERIX.  During these trials the helo had a hard landing on the deck.  The helo sustained some damage to its blades and tail.  There were no serious injuries, and the helo is now onboard MV ASTERIX.  As a result of this, REGINA and ASTERIX will divert to Guam for a port visit to effect repairs to the helo that cannot be done onboard ASTERIX or REGINA, and we need additional parts from Canada.  This has resulted in a cancellation of our Port Visit to Manilla Philippines that was originally scheduled for 4 – 7 March.  At this time the remainder of our mission remains unchanged.

Mail that was sent to REGINA that was supposed to arrive in Philippines will still be forwarded to the ship, and our Logistics Department is working to try to have this mail diverted to Guam to meet the crew on arrival.
