CSSN is proud to announce a new (our third) partnership, with Boatwatch.org, formerly known
as International Boat Watch Network (IBWN), which was established in 2001 as a public service
to the maritime community. Boatwatch.org is now under the ownership and management auspices of Eddie and Glenn Tuttle. Eddie and Glenn Tuttle bring a wealth of experience and a history of community service to managing such an important organization.
Boatwatch.org will continue and expand the mission of IBWN, and they have established a new website Boatwatch.org, as well as an accompanying Facebook Group called Boat Watch. They will serve as a communications focal point/portal for the family and friends of cruisers with emergency communications needs and also for locating overdue and missing yachts/cruisers. They provide valuable assistance and interface with the many governmental agencies responsible for Search and Rescue Operations throughout the world.
Check out their new website Boatwatch.org for Current Watches, Unresolved Cases, Resolved Cases, Resources, Float Plans, and more, including helpful suggestions about what you can do to be a well prepared and educated cruiser. Let your friends and family know about this valuable resource. You will find links to their site, and their reporting form for missing/overdue vessels on the CSSN Help/Info tab.
