If only the port to port rule was better know, life in our harbour would be so much easier, though less entertaining at times.

Rule 1 states that the rules apply to all vessels upon the high seas and all waters connected to the high seas and navigable by seagoing vessels.

well that rules out the sports boats then! but the rules are never applied by them anyway

What happens if following a road way when coming to a junction - do STOP / GIVE WAY signs apply or does the boat on the right have right of way?

This is all very interesting- Colregs may have to be rewritten.

Being from the USA I think y'all drive on the wrong side of the road and port to port is normal for all types of driving.

FWIW do you really need a life jacket when you can stand up with your head out of the water?

No your not, your on the water above the highway, and the water is from the river/sea.

Port to Port I would say, and if you meet a vehicle you allow him room as his displacement is more
