Re: First sail report!

Powerboats will never give you right of way because it doesn't exist. Although you can mostly figure out sailing by trying it out, the rules of the road with regards to stand-on etc is something you must learn - it is when you are encountering other vessels that people can start to get hurt. Other water users need to be (relatively) confident that other water users understand who needs to what in a particular situation, it makes life much easier and more relaxing. Please read and understand colregs.
