Re: Lighting ...

If you are concerned about being seen at night then have a powerfull spotlight in the cockpit AND SHINE IT ON YOUR SAILS if you think aother vessel has not seen you.

Another tip; if you have an all singing and dancing autopilot interfaced with GPS etc AND you are running courses between waypoints that are given on maps off set both waypoints by some small distance say 75 metres. It may help avoid close encounters of the electronically controlled kind.
