Whilst Amateur Radio has a great history of invention 

and service to both business and the general public as a whole,

 this website is dedicated to the sailing fraternity 

with the primary objective of providing information and training facility

 as it applies to “Safety at Sea through Wireless Communication”.


If  you plan any blue water sailing, we invite you to

 join us to make your adventure safer and to

 embrace a new and fascinating world of communication.
