CG66 to SafeTrx

Anyone get an email from HM Coastguard regards the details they hold about you on CG66 (VHF licence) and the recommendation you move or enter details on RYA and the option of enrolling with their SafeTrx app?

I'm not signing up to the app, but I was interested in sharing details with RYA. Whole process is convoluted and not as simple as they say. You need an RYA membership number, and even although I did a guest login, the only way to get a membership number I assume is to join RYA and pay £45.

Am I being daft or anyone else experienced the nonsense trying to register? Thought Ofcom were bad, but this takes the biscuit!

You donít need a membership number. RYA have been running the app for about a year and itís apparently such a success MCGA have decided it will replace CG66 (cg66 is not your vhf license).

Iíve not read the privacy notice but the RYA may not actually get your details, the app was actually developed by a third party and just licensed (paid for) by the RYA. The idea is very sensible to me. It was slightly harder to sign up to than I thought it needed to be but then CG66 was pretty awful.

Iíve just checked and the Rya IS the data controller. And membership number is an optional field.

The thing that gets me about SafeTrx is your trip has to be either training/coaching; diving; or fishing. I’ve done a lot of “training” recently! �� ��

Sorted, thank you.

Take your point regards CG66 being vessel recognition scheme. Happy for RYA to have my details but not planning to use the app any time soon. See CG won't accept new registrations after July 11 and they'll adopt SafeTrx going forward.

Yes, it is odd. The type of trip choice varies with the vessel type so clearly ribs are not intended to cruise!

Yes the details you would normally add to the CG66 is now on the app with the vessel details (which are detailed). I have been using it for training and I am very impressed with it. It allows a photo of your vessel just like CG66, but the main advantage is you can easily add others vessels you may go on. It also has instant Lat Long readings, so if you have no GPS in your boat, it’s excellentvif you need to give the CG your position.
I like it but it’s justvlike anything, it’s new it’s change and it takes some getting used to. Learn about it, you will grow with it!
