Ok...I'll be the Guinea Pig..and take a stab at it.....

They are international regulations....with underlying rules that are universal..

local authorities can create additional rules but they cannot be in direct conflict with the basic Colregs regulations

Inland vs International rules...Western Rivers..even racing rules..might be examples of local authorities

A skipper needs to know the nuances based upon the waters they are operating in.

Feel make fun!...but there will be "NO Soup for you"
