After spending Rendezvous in Whitehorse a handful of Canadian naval officers are headed back to their ship.

The crew of the HMCS Whitehorse had a good time in the territory’s capital, would love to come back and are grateful for the hospitality, said the ship’s commanding officer Lt. Commander Brad Henderson.

“Myself and five of my crew have come up for the Sourdough Rendezvous festival,” Henderson told councillors this week.

“I just wanted to thank you for the hospitality that you’ve shown us.

“We’ve been looked after since we got here.

The Whitehorse is a coastal defence vessel out of Esquimalt, BC, near Victoria, and was first christened in St. John, New Brunswick on June 25, 1994.

The vessel is used for coastal surveillance and patrol, training and in some mine countermeasures.

The ship will be berthed in Skagway in April.
