Davidrogerson is an unknown quantity at this point
The rule mcary is refering to is No vessel under the length of 20 metres shall impede the passage of larger vessels navigating within a narrow channel or fairway.
Also this post poses a split in conseince for me as i currently work on Tankers but in my months of am still a keen sailor i have found that i have a split personality in example 1. I come to the Bridge and the AB or Officer goes through the usual watch handover procedure which at the end consists of any other vessels in the vicinity. He will tell me we have a sailing vessel of the bow, risk of collision exists I will then say has she been altering course taking into accounts tacks, Gybes and wind direction Yes is the reply to which any Officer on the bridge will say something like the following F#@^ing Moron
This happens because in Their and 6 months of the year my mind a 30 foot sailing vessel should in no circumstances have Right of Way over a 150 metre tanker.

Situation 2. I'm in the cockpit when one of the crew tells me i think we might hit that Tanker it's fine i say we have right of way.

But really in my heart of hearts i know that large commercial vessels should have right of way over a 30 foot sailing boat but until the rules are changed enjoy my friends enjoy and take pride in the fact that someone who in the eyes of the sea god massively outranks you must bow his head and alter course even if it is under duress

Here lies the body of Micheal O'Day, He was right, dead right
as he maintained his Right of way, as he sailed along.
But he is still just as dead, as if he been in the wrong.

Does everyone under stand the truth in the above limerick?

VHF conversation (in Croatian, but I will translate it for you) in Adriatic sea few years ago close to Rijeka (large commercial port):
Large tanker on channel 16: Little boat get lost and clear my way.
33 foot sailboat: I am under sail and have the right of way.
Large tanker: As you wish. I have xxx tons and I can pretend I am braking.

The sailboat took good advise and cleared the way of the comercial ship.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The old days of RCYC Junior Club sailing 420s and Laser IIs in Toronto Harbour back in the early 80s. If there wasn't a whole lot of wind (common in Toronto in the morning), we used to drive the ferry captains nuts by using the apparent wind coming off them as they went by at 15-20 knots with spinnakers no less. Our week wasn't complete if the club didn't get at least 3 major complaints. I don't think that any of the dinghys were ever hit as even at 14 years of age you know that a 115' x 35' ferry with a couple hundred people on board is going to hurt.

I've "drafted" aft of some ferries in Toronto harbour in a 33 footer, briefly, as they soon pull away. It can be done in any sail boat with masts shorter than the ferry's total height, I think, but they really don't want to see you forward of the beam.

Yep....certain truths are self evident on land, too!

Self explanatory.
