Been sailing for years, never bothered learning them, just keep well away from the big fellas and know at night red to red is good.

But I do have a laminated cheat sheet to refer to in interesting situations but only ever really needed it once and that was at night when I considered passing behind a tug boat.

Did you know they use tow ropes a mile long!

I sorted out the lights in time.
