CSSN News – December 20, 2021 – The Caribbean Safety and Security Net (CSSN) celebrates its 25 year silver anniversary!


It’s almost hard to believe but 25 years ago the founders of the Caribbean Safety and Security Net (CSSN) www.safetandsecuritynet.org began with a SSB voice net, and a goal to keep cruisers well informed and up-to-date about problems with dinghy theft in Venezuela. Fast forward 25 years and the many volunteers throughout the years are still delivering on the promise – fact based reports about crimes against yachts. CSSN delivers with new and contemporary device friendly tools, the CSSN website, and the daily KPK SSB voice net in partnership with the Seven Seas Cruising Association.

It’s now easier than ever to stay well informed and up-to-date, to KNOW BEFORE YOU GO! Cruisers can use the CSSN website, a 25 years long and well respected source for factual and focused safety and security information. There are helpful and popular tools like the interactive Zoom-Tap, Know & Go maps, including dedicated maps for piracy and the “must read” companion Piracy Precautions information, all from cruisers who have been there and done that. CSSN’s resources are for everyone, seasoned salts returning to the region and their favorite anchorages, and especially valuable for those new to cruising or the region who are planning to explore more broadly.

It’s all there on the CSSN website: Annual Reports that analyze and summarize activity; interactive Zoom-Tap maps for quickly and easily exploring activity by anchorage; and of course (FREE) subscriptions to email ALERTS!, CSSN’s incident reports delivered to their inbox when they choose.

Visit and explore the CSSN website today, stay well informed, and say a kind word of thanks for the 25 years of dedicated service CSSN volunteers have provided to the cruising community. It’s easy to help others by making them aware of CSSN and of the value CSSN continues to bring to our community. CSSN has been built for cruisers with the information provided by cruisers to help fellow cruisers to
