Sailingplan.ca is an effective, fast and easy to use solution for creating and filing a sailing plan before you head out on the water. You can create and manage your sailing plan at home or while on board your vessel. In the rare case that you might run into trouble, the sailingplan.ca system kicks into gear and will automatically forward the details of your vessel, route and passengers to contacts that you trust and the Coast Guard.
Transport Canada suggests that before leaving home port, boaters should prepare a sailing plan, and leave a copy with a responsible person on shore (a relative, wharfinger, union official, fish plant manager, local police, or fisheries officer). That person can then contact the Rescue Co-ordination Centre or Marine Rescue Sub-Centre if your vessel becomes overdue. The sailing plan will help guide search and rescue teams in the event of an emergency. With Sailingplan.ca you can stay compliant with Transport Canada and boat safer. Register today for free!
Whether leaving for a few hours or several days, a sailing plan with an automated emergency escalation procedure remains one of your most important lifesaving tools.
