Yacht Information

Yacht tracking - tsunami
I have been keeping track of the status of a number of cruising vessels since the Indian Ocean tsunamis, mostly those communicating via Winlink as I operate the Winlink PMBO in Perth, Western Australia. I have made a status webpage available at http://www.bur.st/~philsuth/tsunami_status.html which I am constantly updating as I receive further information. Phil Sutherland VK6KPS.
