History of Morpheus’ Travels

During our cruise and occasionally on long distance races, we have sent in position and weather reports to an offshore tracking service —  http://www.pangolin.co.nz/yotreps/index.php

This service shares the weather info we submit with offshore weather forecasters allowing them to compare their forecast data with near real time data that they would have no way of collecting otherwise. Occasionally, when we download a weather fax we can see our report reflected on the weather map.

The service also shares position info with Search and Rescue services in the event that they are trying to locate you.

And, I’ve just found that it keeps a historical database of positions that can be displayed on google earth charts!!

Now, I wish I used the service more often!!
