Communication

  • VHF coastal stations are issuing weatherforcast (in norwegian) and traffic lists (in english for foreign vessels) on their WORKING Channels (most can receive channel 16 and or MDSS. But you have to call them on a working channel preferably (see coastal radio frequency plan). They will give you the latest forecast in English on request.

Also see World Cruiser's Nets.

For large islands with many ports, marinas and anchorages add a table as shown in Simple Table. if you do so, remove the following "Marinas & Yacht Clubs" and "Anchorages" sections.

For smaller islands, first list their major ports (needing more the 1-3 paragraphs to describe) and then for each one of these create a dedicated page using (Port Stub page).
