See updated Net information here.

All Cruisers are welcome to check into the net. You do not have to be an SSCA member to utilize this service. Services include position reports, phone patches to family, friends, medical or mechanical professionals, or Internet searches.

Like last year, the primary participants will be:

Glenn Tuttle, Coastal Station KPK, Punta Gorda, FL
Chris Parker, Coastal Station WCY, Lakeland, FL
Jim West, Coastal Station KJM, Ellijay, GA
Dick Giddings, Coastal Station KNC, Dover, NC

As previously, Dick Giddings, Coastal Station KNC, will combine his afternoon Doo Dah net at 1700 hrs on frequency 8.152 to incorporate the Trans-Atlantic Cruisers Net.

So this Wednesday, October 24th the combined Doo Dah/SSCA Trans-Atlantic Cruisers Net will begin at 1700 hrs on frequency 8.152. At 1730 hrs, we will switch to frequency 12.350 and start the SSCA Trans-Atlantic Cruisers Net. At 1800 hrs Chris Parker will start his weather net on 12.350.

Daylight Savings

Due to the switch from Daylight Savings Time to Eastern Standard Time on Saturday night November 3rd, beginning on Sunday, November 4th, 2018 the SSCA Trans-Atlantic Cruisers Net will begin at 1630 hrs on frequency 12.350 and remain on that frequency until 1700 hrs.

Then at 1700 hrs, the Doo Dah/Trans-Atlantic Cruisers Net will begin on frequency 8.152.

Chris cannot participate on that frequency as he will be running his weather net at 1700 hrs on both 8.137 and 12.350 simultaneously.

Float Plans

If you want to send the Trans-Atlantic net a float plan, please use the one put out by the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, which may be found in PDF form at http://floatplancentral.cgaux.org/download/USCGFloatPlan.pdf

The SSCA will keep your float plan, but your primary emergency contact should be a close friend or family member who is familiar with your boat and cruising plans. They should also have a copy of your float plan. The SSCA cannot be your primary emergency contact.

Cruisers are welcome and encouraged to share this information on other Facebook Groups and to their cruising friends.
