Goldcrest is one of two CS 36 Sailboats operated by the Royal Canadian Navy’s Naval Fleet School Pacific. Her mission is to provide Sail Training Opportunities to summer students and students waiting for formal trades training. Goldcrest was commissioned 3 May 1985 and has served the West Coast since. She has participated in many prominent races in the Pacific Northwest throughout the years
In 2018 she was joined by her sister ship Tuna which was recently transferred from the East.
She is the second RCN ship to hold the name Goldcrest. The first was the sailing sloop Dontaff which was transferred to the RCN as a war prize from the German Navy after the Second World War.
