Trace app

Welcome to the Trace app.

Trace is a free web app created by the team at Jersey Coastguard. It’s a simple way to submit transit reports, something anyone taking to the sea is asked to do, as an alternative option to calling Jersey Coastguard over VHF radio.

It includes a range of useful tools and safety reminders not only for mariners, but anyone heading out to sea, including kayakers, canoeists and paddle boarders.

Jersey Coastguard is still here 24/7 365 days a year for the mariner and will always welcome VHF calls, but Trace provides an enhanced digital offering, which improves safety awareness, aids with planning and improves situational awareness for the Coastguard team.

Vessels are encouraged to close off their transit reports (TRs) on safe arrival.  Currently any open TRs are not followed up. On receipt of a call from a friend or family member reporting that a vessel is overdue, the information from an open TR is then acted upon.
