Since 2019 our Fleet actively contributes to the world-wide voluntary weather observing, submitting the weather observation to the U.S.A. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (N.O.A.A.).

During the Crew seminar held in Manila on 14 March 2021 I was proud to celebrate our ships, STI MAESTRO, STI MARSHALL, and STI MYSTERY, for their exceptional contribution to global maritime safety. They’ve made history as the first, fourth, and fifth among  over 4,000 vessels worldwide to voluntarily report weather observations to the U.S.A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (N.O.A.A.).

Moreover STI OXFORD, STI MAXIMUS, STI MAVERICK, STI BROOKLYN &  STI BATTERY proudly followed  in the first thirties.

Their dedication ensures safer seas for all. Well done!!

Quoting from NWS Observing Handbook No.1

“Weather has an almost magical hold on the mariner. Every change in the  weather at sea is noted with a sense of trepidation. Reporting weather not only  contributes to your safety but adds to your basic knowledge of seamanship. It is part of keeping a good lookout.”
