Happy Return is now on AIS

Hi Guys,

Now we finally got 95% of the electrics completed, especially the New AIS and got it talking to the Standard Horizon chart plotter and also I have registered with Marine Traffic so for those who like to follow HR can go to this site and follow her progress or see where she is.

Here is the link to Marine Traffic:  http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ (Search "Happy Return" in the search box in the top left hand corner) as you will now see we have a photo for HR.  (It takes up to 48 hours for any photos to be verified before seen on the web site).  I have also added some other details like weight, draught etc.  This has not yet been uploaded.

If you want to log into the web site, you may need to register - it is free.

It was great to test the AIS on last night’s sail.  Contacted Falmouth CG, they could see us OK and replied back with our speed & course.  Also noticed a CPA (Closest Point of Approach) alarm from Scillonian 111,             if we maintained our course & speed and same for Scillonian 111 we would be within 0.3Nm within 10 minutes.

All the best - David Keast - 7th May
