    How to: find the Freewinds, anytime, anywhere

    Are you trying to track the Freewinds, or try to find out the Freewinds current
    location, or next destination?

    Go here:

    FREEWINDS - 6810811 - Vessel's Details and Current Position

    Initial language will be Swedish. In top right corner, click Svenska to access the
    drop-down menu to change to English.


    In the text column on the left side, go down to the section where it says Last Position Received.
    There is info there regarding when the last coordinates were received.
    Click on the Latitude / Longitude coordinates in red.


    A new window opens, and will show the last know location of the Freewinds.


    On this page, there are also lots of other menus to play around with,

    - top left, other related pages
    - left side, boxes to tick or untick to add / delete information
    - top right, different map views.

    So, how does this web site collect information? Go to the FAQ page:

    Frequently Asked Questions on AIS and Real time ship observation

    AIS is fairly short range so when the vessel is in the open seas no updates will be received.

    Yes, that is correct.

    However, if you go to the web site section Voyage Related Info (Last Received),
    the next scheduled destination is shown, along with ETA to destination, and date
    and time of last update.

    So until the next update, Freewinds should be somewhere between the last
    position received and the next destination.
