For our PacCup Adventure (and tomorrow’s Spin Cup as well), the Temerity crew will be equipped with the newly approved Kannad SafeLink R10 MOB recovery beacons. We received two units just days ago, and will test them this weekend. These devices combine GPS and VHF/DSC to put out a MOB alert that can be picked up via AIS, generally that of the vessel that one has just departed. In our case, we have AIS on board and even in the cockpit on our RAM mic. So many life-saving acronyms!
