Cruising Communication & Courtesy


We generally have group radio net communications in the morning (at 8:30am) and again in the evening (at 8:30pm).  (We recommend setting recurring alarms on your phone to remind you to turn on your VHF radio.)  This allows us to keep track of everyone and make everyone aware of potential weather issues or float plan changes.  In addition, at the cruise director's discretion, we may have a WhatsApp group of participating boaters so that we can communicate with each other easily between radio nets. Each boat must be responsible for tuning in and keeping informed about group plans, as well as letting the group know of your plans.  Radio net times may change depending on activities and weather but you’ll be notified ahead of time.  Many members also tune into Roy Eaton’s North Channel Cruiser’s Net at 9am.
