Cruisers Advisory for Passage between Trinidad and Grenada...File a Float Plan


  • Go overnight and not during daylight. Based on what happened on the 20 & 27th Dec 2015  the vessels were robbed  during the day and do not have radar equipment on board, consider transiting at night when visibility is decreased and yachts can monitor activity on their radar and possibly even switch off their running lights, should this be required. 
  • North Post Radio transmits and receives clear messages in the area concerned and at this time this is the best communication channel when calling for assistance on the radio. 
  • Go in convoy with other yachts, preferably of similar average speed, and set up communication check times and channels with them. Inform CG Patrol on channel 16 or via 800-TTCG of your convoy.
  • Submit a passage float plan to Coast Guard advising time of leaving, intended route and ETA in Grenada, remembering to also confirm your safe arrival with the Coast Guard. This can be communicated by phone 800-TTCG or 634-1476 or email- or HF - 2186MHz (call sign - 9YA).

Other contact information includes Jesse James who is the SSCA Cruising Station Host and the OCC Port Officer - phone number-683-5202 and email Kindly also inform YSATT via telephone -634-4938 or email- and North Post via phone 637-9023/4474.

  • If transiting during the day, consider a route further east of the Hibiscus Oil Drilling Platform (approximately 5 - 10 miles east).   
  • Do not publicize your time of departure anywhere, e.g. on the VHF cruisers net, etc.
  • Captains and crews are asked to be especially vigilant and report any suspicious sightings as early as possible to the Coast Guard.
