Amver Around The World

In case you are wondering what impact Amver has around the world you don't need to look any further than the requests for assistance received this weekend. The first request came from RCC Australia for a disabled 39 foot yacht making its way from Capetown, South Africa to Fremantle, Australia. The second request came from MRCC Reunion requesting Amver data to search for an overdue skiff with two people on board. The third request also came from MRCC Reunion. This time a tanker was reporting a man overboard.

In every case Amver vessel position data was shared with the requesting rescue coordination center. We are working with these centers to determine if any lives were saved and look forward to updating the blog soon.

Its often easy to forget that there are others in remote places that may need our help. Enrolling and actively reporting in the Amver system helps ensure they get the assistance they need.
