Collision Avoidance Notes

All yachts using Southampton Water (whether racing or not) should be aware that any large ships entering and leaving Southampton Docks should probably be treated as vessels “constrained by their draught” or “constrained in their ability to manouvre” in respect of the Collision Regulations. 
Yachts should not only give way but also keep clear well in advance and in an obvious way.
