WHO’S IN THE BAY?
Use www.marinetraffic.com to see what’s about in the Bay.
It’ll include all vessels that carry an automatic identification system (AIS) transponder and have it switched on.
As well as an overview of the traffic in the area, select individual vessels to see their planned route, speed and course, and details of the vessel itself.
If you can see a sailing boat in the Bay, but it doesn’t appear on Marine Traffic, something hasn’t gone wrong.
The sailing boat probably doesn’t have an AIS transponder. Most pleasure craft don’t.
