Gulf Harbour Radio
Gulf Harbour Radio uses the two tracking site pages to see where boats are, and to check that the actual conditions you are reporting match up with the models David is looking at. Many of you have your own blogs but we have only time each morning to look at the two web sites that many use.
Please make sure your boat and crew data is accurate and in the case of emergency have a contact number. Already this 2019 season two boats have made use of emergency services so it speeds things up to have this information available.
www.cruisersat.net is run by Kostya on SV Ponyo. Make sure you join the Gulf Harbour Radio SW Pacific group . There are good clear instructions to follow but if you have any problems contact him at email@example.com.
www.yit.nz is run by Mike on SV Mirabilis. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems.
The detailed personal information is only available to the web managers and Gulf Harour Radio and is used when emergencies occur and we need to communicate with NZ Maritime Radio or the RCC - Rescue Coordination Centre. David needs boat information to better answer weather requests - a 60' catamaran will travel faster than a 30' monohull!.
