Pete Goss - route planning - video transcript

Pete Goss: Before you put to sea plan your route and provisions. Now, planning includes thinking about wind, waves, tides and of course safe havens. Mark all the safe havens along the route where you can shelter should the weather turn nasty. Leave a copy of your route plan with a reliable person who can sound the alarm if you're overdue or missing. In your plan include a description of your vessel, planned stops, names of passengers and when you expect to return. Use the marine radio network on BHF, HF or 27 megahertz to log on and provide trip details and always remember to log off upon arrival to avoid needless searches.
