The Caribbean Safety and Security Net is primarily an interactive high frequency radio network of cruising yachts which meets each morning on single sideband frequency 8104.0 at 1215 UTC for the purpose of exchanging information with regard to safety and security concerns while cruising in the Eastern Caribbean.
The main purpose has always been to report and log incidents of crime against yachts, so that sailors in the Eastern Caribbean can make intelligent decisions about where to visit and how to behave while there. The Security Net does not track reports of crimes on land, unless those are committed in areas where yachts congregate: marinas, customs offices, etc.
While the reporting and logging of cruiser-related incidents is still a large part of Net activities, the Net has expanded into much more. Most people who listen and/or contribute see the Net as an information exchange and as a place to turn when there are questions or concerns about some part of this cruising life.
In addition to reporting and logging incidents, the Net provides a relay on emergency and priority messages from friends and family, boat watches for vessels missing or overdue, warnings of navigational hazards both natural and manmade, sources for medical services, and, as time allows, information on a variety of other topics, such as customs and immigration procedures and fees, other nets, sources of weather information, etc.
