Learning the Rule of the Road – A Guide for the Skippers and Crew of Small Craft
By Basil Mosenthal
Learning the Rule of the Road is based on The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, but because these Regulations are lengthy and detailed they are not always easy to understand – nor is it easy to find your way around.
A good working knowlede of the Rule of the Road is essential for both skippers and crews of yachts and motorboats – as well as everyone else who goes to sea. It is also an important part of RYA qualifications for Day Skipper and Yachtmaster.
This guide takes those sections of the rules that particularly affect small craft, and explains them briefly and simply. Lights, shapes and sounds signals are clearly illustrated, as are the basic steering and sailing rules, and the full text of the Regulations is included at the end of the book.
This guide is ideal for beginners but will also act as a useful reminder for those with more experience.
