Not to frighten you BUT - Do you know the The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, (COLREGS), are quite simply, the ‘rules of the road’ for ships and other vessels at sea; they set out the conduct of vessels in any condition of visibility, in sight of each other and in restricted visibility. Failure to comply with the COLREGS – not necessarily a collision but simply a breach of the rules such as motoring the wrong way in a separation lane – is a criminal offence that, depending on its severity, could mean prison and/or an unlimited fine.
