A good working knowledge of the Rule of the Road is essential for both skippers and crew of yachts and motorboats - as well as everyone else who goes to sea. It is also an important part of RYA Day Skipper and Yachtmaster courses. Learning the Rule of the Road includes the full text of 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. 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 set out, as are the basic steering and sailing rules. The full text of the Regulations is also included at the end of the book for reference. This guide is ideal for beginners but is also an ideal aide-memoire for those with more experience. 'Don't put to sea without a copy!

Collisions are expensive! Learning, understanding and remembering the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGs) is essential for anyone venturing onto the water. Leisure boaters, as much as professional mariners, need to know the rules, and a firm understanding is required to pass many nautical exams. But with the COLREGs stretching to over 12,000 words, this is no small task. This is where Paul Boissier’s excellent book comes in. Paul knows the COLREGs backwards having used them extensively in his career with the Royal Navy – from the bridges of submarines and warships which he has commanded, with each giving a rather different perspective on other shipping! He also knows the other side well with his extensive cruising experience, from his early years with his father to now, sailing his own yacht. These experiences mean that he knows and understands the COLREGs from both sides and this gives him the ability to take you through the COLREGs from a mariners’ and sailors’ perspective. He brings the vital, but dry, document to life, going through it not in order, but by topics which are relevant to the mariner and sailor. Paul explains the intention of each rule and how it should be applied when at sea. He includes personal anecdotes (not all favourable to him!) which make everything real and tells us how he remembers different aspects of the Regulations through mnemonics and other devices. Finally, each chapter ends with a self-test to reinforce what has been learnt – other tests are also available online on the Fernhurst Books’ website. This new edition has been updated with the 2016 changes to the CLOREGS. Whether you want to increase your confidence, pass an exam, require an on-board reference, or wish to improve your understanding of the nautical rules of the road, this is the ideal book for you.
