Boat owners’ community
Boat owners’ associations
In addition to the local yacht clubs, local boat owners have a long tradition of running memberships amongst their own individual boating communities, set up and named after the particular port or harbour their vessel is moored in. The associations aim to:
- promote and maintain interest in all aspects of boating
- seek continued improvements and maintain acceptable standards
- provide members with information, safety advice and assistance on matters connected with boating
- monitor changes in local laws and regulations affecting boat owners’ and report such changes to the members
- maintain close relations and to work together with Ports of Jersey in representing our members thus achieving the best policies for both parties
- bring local boat owners closer together

Trace web app
Trace is a new 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.
