[QUOTE=nickmerc;795744] However, you should be able to use an all around white light in conjunction with your port and starboard lights as long as you turn off your stern light.[/QUOTE]
This does not meet the lighting requirements. You may only use the tri-light when sailing. When steaming a sailboat becomes a motor vessel. You therefore need a forward steaming light, port and starboard lights and a stern light and you must turn off your trilight.
