Study Notes

COLREG Rules

  • COLREG rules apply to all vessels on the high seas and connected waters navigable by seagoing vessels.
  • Special rules may be made by an appropriate authority for roadsteads, harbours, rivers, lakes, or inland waterways, but must conform to COLREG rules.

Definitions

  • A "vessel" includes every description of watercraft, including non-displacement craft and seaplanes, used or capable of being used as a means of transportation on water.
  • A "power-driven vessel" means any vessel propelled by machinery.
  • A "sailing vessel" means any vessel under sail, provided that propelling machinery, if fitted, is not being used.

General Responsibility

  • Nothing in COLREG rules exempts a vessel, or its owner, master, or crew, from the consequences of neglecting to comply with the rules or taking necessary precautions.
  • Ordinary practice of seamen and special circumstances of the case must be considered.

Ordinary Practice of Seamen

  • Examples of ordinary practice of seamen include:
    • Passing other vessels at anchorage by passing astern of them.
    • Changing to hand (manual) steering in congested waters.
    • Ensuring a good and clear swinging circle when coming to an anchorage area.
    • Vessels stemming the tide waiting and giving way to vessels having the tide from astern in narrow channels.

Special Circumstances of the Case

  • Examples of special circumstances of the case include:
    • A vessel not under command (NUC) overtaking, where the own ship which is not under command must take action to avoid collision.
