When cruising and making a passage we just always called or emailed a family member and said..."here is where we are headed...call the Coast Guard if you don't hear from us by xxx" .
We would always build lots of "leeway" into our call the CG date to account for weather or mechanical problems. I think the main thing on real passages is to have someone know you are out there and where you are headed and not to get worried too soon.
