Venezuelan National Rescue and Maritime Safety Organization Urges Yachts To Report Attacks
ONSA (the Venezuelan National Rescue and Maritime Safety Organization) has responded to s/v NOMOTOS "Campaign against cruiser crime in Venezuela" with the comments that yachts attacked in Venezuelan waters prefer to report their attacks to the press instead of to ONSA (as well to the local authorities).
ONSA urges the maritime community to report directly or through anyone with an internet connection any attack using the PIRACY/ARMED ROBBERY WEB PAGE FORM REPORT located at: http://www.onsa.org.ve/direcciones/asuntos/sm/pirateria/
This web-based form goes directly to the National and International authorities.
ONSA is a national voluntary and civil organization which publishes a Boater's Risk Zone Map of dangerous areas at http://www.onsa.org.ve/enindex.shtml#
