Sailing


Choose a bright colour, such as red, yellow, or orange for your light jacket or PFD so other boat operators can see you. Keep signalling devices within easy reach in case of emergency. 

  • Sail-craft have right of way over motorized boats. 
  • When two sail-craft are on different tacks, the one on starboard tack has the right of way.
  • If both sail-craft are on the same tack, the downwind sail-craft has the right of way.
  • When one sail-craft is coming up from behind another, the slower one has right of way.
