Sail meets Sail, Rule 12(iii)

And the one that confuses most sailors as well
It's a good idea if you see yachts converging like this to give them a wide berth.In theory, they should behave according to this rule.
In practice they could do anything, and I have witnessed almost 'road rage' scenes resulting from skippers misunderstanding this rule.

If that has whetted your appetite then the detailed rules are here: http://www.dft.gov.uk/mca/msn_1781-2.pdf

Everyone who uses the sea needs to understand those and can be prosecuted for ignoring them. The attentive will notice that the above rules only apply when the vessels can see each other - but presumably if you are planning to take your boat out with a risk of fog you are not learning the rules from a website!

Remember: Keep a look out at all times > Use a safe speed > Assess every vessel you see to determine if there could be a collision > Take the necessary action to avoid a collision. Make changes in course early and obvious so others can see what you are doing.

If this is all new to you, or your think you need to brush up then you might want to undertake some training (e.g. from an RYA school) either afloat or in the classroom to help you understand these in real life. If you need to find a local school then the RYA website will help you - but why not ask one of the RIBnet trade members - they are likely to understand the circumstances you will be operating in.

If you are new to boating you might want to take a look here: Sea Safety - The Complete Guide and RNLI sea safety advice for some great information that will help keep you safe.

Finally why not test your understanding over here: colregs :: Wiley Nautical

Going to bump this up so a few more see it as there's quite a few joined since it went up.
