How'd you do Dave? Piece of cake? But I do agree with you. Those that ridicule the Colregs or tests about them are usually those that don't know the REgs and can't pass the test.

Re: Colregs Test Yourself

Got it open. I was hoping for more good stuff, like look out and obligations of a stand on vessel. The lack of understanding of obligation of a stand on vessel seems to be more then anything, what sets WAFI's apart from responsible sailors. "Oh- I have right of way, so I can do what ever I want- tack tack gybe".


Looking forward to tomorrows test. I have some old Canadian WKM sample exams, if I can find a ColRegs I'll post it- I guess I should make sure it isn't still in circulation too. I think chartwork and pilotage would also be fun.

I think the second part of the test (where you are asked what you should do) covers the Stand-on and Give-way part. First you have to identify what the hell it isyou are seeing (from the lights etc) then decide who is stand-on or give -way and then decide what you should be doing and what the other guy (if he knows his colregs) will do.

I'm surprised that only 4 members here have taken a shot at it - anyone who considers themselves a sailor should be able to get most of these right, or else they shouldn't be on the water.

This is why people avoid doing your test. Because you go making judgemental calls like this.

The COLREGS are not so strongly emphasised in this part of the world. Our 'boating' license is based on them but it includes only enough for basic navigation.

Personally I don't see a need to go learning heaps of stuff recognising lights coming at me for multiple lanes of traffic when there is nothing like that anywhere near me.

At night, all in need to know is that I see lights coming my way, I get out if the way. I don't care if I'm the one that has the right of way either (yes I know that's not the terminology), I just keep my distance and stay away.

Well, by popular demand here's more. Since some of you don't think you'll ever run into other shipping or fog where you live and sail, then this part of the test is buoys and their characteristics (these are everywhere).

Please note that these are IALA A buoys and characteristics since this is a european test. You american types will have to think backwards on some of these

enjoy (god I love it when I can be sadistic)

It's presumptuous to assume a score before you've posted the answers.

Well you may be right - but I think most will know if they are totally lost or get most of them right.

I'll give it a couplel of more days and then post the answers

Re: Colregs Test Yourself

The very last one has me stumped. Blue over red- I just can't remember.

REmember - Thsoe were reflects - black does not reflect so Blue is used as a substitute.

Think Black over Red - isolated danger marker
