HMCS Vancouver returns to readiness

="hmcs vancouver ready for sea"

HMCS Vancouver slipped all lines and proceeded to sea.

On Nov. 10, for the first time in two years, HMCS Vancouver slipped all lines and proceeded to sea.

With help and guidance from Sea Training Pacific, sailors progressed through a five day intense programme of training serials designed to test Vancouver’s response to a wide variety of emergency situations including damage control, man overboard, and the planning and response to a search and rescue mission. As a result, Vancouver has returned to operational status and Restricted Readiness.

The successful completion of Restricted Readiness Inspections represents the culmination of months of hard work and preparation at all levels of the ship’s company, but it is only the first step on the long road to full operational status.

Over the coming weeks and months, the officers and crew of HMCS Vancouver will continue to take every opportunity to refresh old skills, master new ones, and come together as a team.
