How to sail safely and avoid collisions. What should you do when you meet a sailing boat, a motor boat or a ship? Find the answers to the most common sailing scenarios with PBOâ€™s Colregs Made Simple app. Easy to follow photo sequences and video clips make the rules of the sea simple to understand and remember. Plus - we put the RYAâ€™s ex chief examiner in the video box to bring you his expert analysis of each tricky situation youâ€™re likely to come across. The problem with reading the Colregs is that it can be difficult to relate a densely-worded regulation to a situation you are likely to encounter out at sea. We wanted to show some real-life situations and how to get out of them - but it would be foolhardy to sail in front of tankers, cross perilously close to fishing boats and irritate motorboaters. There had to be another way. Pilots and shipsâ€™ deck officers head to the Warsash Maritime Collegeâ€™s ship-handling centre, at Timsbury Lake near Romsey in Hampshire, where they learn the ropes in a fleet of scale models. But these are no ordinary models: they are around 30ft (9.1m) long and weigh 8 tons, and have the same handling characteristics as their full-size brethren. We assembled a fleet of Micro Magic sailing yachts, and contacted the Solent Radio Control Model Boat Club, whose members came up trumps and arrived with a number of scale powerboats, fishing and pilot vessels for us to put in peril. This app is not a definitive guide to the Colregs - instead, itâ€™s an aide-memoire to the rules youâ€™re likely to need when you encounter another vessel at sea.
