Know your Rules of the Road
Q. Your new sail on your racing dinghy seems to be worth the money as you lead your class upto the first mark. Trouble is the Conservancy passenger vessel Solar Heritage is right in you racing line.
You know that as the overtaking boat you do not have the right of way - but it's not often you're in front. What shall you do?
Click for answer
A collision occurred in the harbour Saturday 11 May 2013 between a sailing dinghy, flying an asymmetric spinnaker, and a yacht. An investigation of the incident found that the dinghy sailor was not keeping a proper lookout as required by the International Regulations for the Preventing Collisions at Sea (Rule 5).
Failure to keep a proper lookout is a common factor in many incidents in the harbour and all mariners are reminded of this fundamental requirement.
Low clewed and long footed sails impede vision and extra vigilance is required when using them.
