You can set up a blog/website with a Google Maps tracker or join SSCA and list your position on their members location page. But more realistically you need only to send data messages or phone calls using the iridium to family or friends back home each day or two if you are concerned with having somebody keep track of you.
- - The blog or your own webpage can include a Google tracking map just like those used by the "round the world alone" girls and others including racers use. But you need to update the tracking position with a data message using the Iridium.
