Recently CSSN published a firsthand report about events reported to us that occurred on a passage from Trinidad to Grenada. The captain that submitted the report used our online form and chose from the options there – Attempted Piracy. The report was vetted and then published, and accurately described what occurred.
A few readers contacted us concerned that the categorization of the events did not meet the specific definition of the existing category “Attempted Piracy”. And they were right.
So we will make some changes after considering a broad range of possibilities, including those that some readers have thoughtfully suggested, balanced by the technical realities of our website, and the resources of our all-volunteer team.
We appreciate constructive input and look forward to improving our service to the cruising community. Stay tuned, and Know Before You Go !
