Rules of the Road

 

Rules of the Road: A Practical Approach

Avoid collisions and other hazards! Know the rules of the road.

Navigational rules of the road help you know what to do when you share the water with other boats, how to recognize and signal intentions, and how to avoid a collision.  This seminar focuses in a practical way on helping you understand the basic rules encountered by recreational boaters during almost every boating outing and the rules most likely to apply in the local waters where you boat.  It covers skipper responsibilities, general rules, and definitions, rules to avoid a collision, lights and shapes, and sound and light signals.

Rules of the Road will help you understand how to recognize local situations, the rules that apply, and the actions you should take.  And be sure to read the United States Coast Guard's Navigational Rules and Regulations Handbook for the authoritative word on all rules of the road, since - as the skipper or designated crew member - you are responsible to know the rules that apply anywhere you boat.

Rules of the Road  is offered as an individual seminar or it may be taken as part of the Boat Handling course. Save by taking the whole course.
