Re: White Flares
Actually, white flares are very handy things to have within arms reach on dark nights.
Letting one of those off in the direction of the stinkpot who "hasn't seen your nav lights" and is about to run you down is a far more effective (and absolutely legal) way to let him know you're there than shining a half-flat torch on your sails..
