Users can still use the historical database to create reports about areas that interest you. If you haven't visited the CSSN website lately, click (here) and  take a few minutes and review the many improvements that have been made there, including improved and easily customized island/anchorage reports, accessing whatever parts of the extensive CSSN database that are relevant to you.

CSSN have also revised their easy to use online incident reporting form, take it for a test drive ... Inline image 2.  Submit Incident Report

Know what questions to ask when you hear a report on VHF.  No one wants to be a victim but if you are, it's easy and important to make an online report to CSSN.  It is your opportunity to help others to avoid a similar problem, and to create the historic record in a complete and accurate way.


When you hear of an incident, ask those involved to complete a CSSN online incident report, or simply make a report on their behalf. Do take the few minutes it takes to help others understand and possibly prevent the same from happening again.

The tools at the CSSN website are there for Caribbean cruisers, so if you are headed that way this Autumn, or already in the Islands, understand and use the CSSN wisely.
