Re: Sailing knowledge Quiz

Odd how many questions were related to the colour schemes of cardinal marks... something that I have never bothered to memorize. I identify them by their topmarks, which are usually more distinct to me.

But really... a pretty trivial quiz IMO.

The colour schemes actually mimic the topmarks, where yellow indicates the base of the triangles and black indicates the point of the triangles. so if you know one, you know the other.

Re: Sailing knowledge Quiz

Never seen or read about vertical blue/gold stripes. What's it mean?

Do you mean the blue yellow temporary wreck marks ?

Yes. Wasn't in any of my USA material. Is it strictly international regions "A"?

Well, I'll be damned! I never noticed that, Stu, so thank you very much for pointing (ho,ho) it out.
