For many of us, living on the west coast of Canada means getting out on the water and enjoying the incredible spectacle of the nature that surrounds us. For others that enjoyment extends into a passion. A passion to understand and protect that marine environment.

 

MERS 240x74The Marine Education and Research Society (MERS) is one such group with a passion to understand and protect. With a focus on Humpback and Minke whales, MERS also works to reduce harm to other marine species and to educate the public on how to best protect our natural gifts.

Squadron Cruises

On Friday April 26, Fraser Squadron held its anual Annual General Meeting and Change of Watch at the Richmond Yacht club.

With attendance by PMD representative Craig Neill and guest speater Lorraine Graves, this years AGM was another success.

A Maritime Mobile Service Identity is a nine-digit number that uniquely identifies your boat, you the owner and your contact information. Each Digital Selective Calling radio needs to be registered and assigned an MMSI number. Your DSC radio can be used to send a distress alert to the Coast Guard and nearby vessels (with DSC radios in receiving range) or to selectively contact another vessel when you know its MMSI number.

If you have relatively new VHF radio in your boat, chances are it is equipped with Digital Select Calling or DSC. The most important feature of a VHF DSC radio is that you can send a Distress Alert which will tell the Coast Guard and other boaters in your area that you require immediate assistance.
