Passage Monitoring Benefits

  • Vessel Tracking

    Tracks your progress using MarineTraffic satellite AIS, with notifications for stopped or sailing in high winds.

  • GMDSS Weather Reports

    Daily delivery of Government issued high seas forecasts for the METAREA you are transiting.

  • If Single Handed

    Alert you to shipping expected to cross your track overnight, and the existence of vessels engaged in fishing.

  • When your workload is high

    I can take care of communications with customs, weather routers, rally organisers, and anybody else ashore you need me to keep in the loop.

  • When You Are Stressed

    I am an experienced, calm and friendly voice on the end of a satellite phone to help you through challenging situations.

  • Rescue Coordination Centre Notification

    Where there is clear evidence you are in trouble or are likely to be in trouble soon.

"I have used Peter's services whilst sailing in the South Pacific since 2016. Both as a private user and as a Rally Organiser with Island Cruising NZ, Peter has provided SSB radio skeds, satellite cover, communications with land based people, email support and safety guidance to vessels in need of some assistance. He always does exactly what he says he will in a timely and efficient fashion. I recommend his services to anyone intending to venture off shore. He most certainly will have your back."
