With Summer coming up, and the associated increase in trips, just a friendly reminder to update your callsign details at Coastguard if you have a different boat (It seems there's been a lot of buy/sell action going on in the last few windy wintery months :lol: )

You can update online at:

And, while it's not preferable, you can have two (or more) boats under the same callsign, BUT you need to make this clear on the CG callsign sheet, and make sure your shore contact knows which one you have taken with you.
