Answer to last week’s question

18 February, 2021

With one short blast, the ferry is indicating that he is intending to turn to Starboard. No doubt he will be turning into the Swashway Channel as he passes the No.4 Bar buoy. Unless you are very close to the buoy yourself and the ferry had enough room to turn behind you, it would be prudent to slow down and manoeuvre to allow him go ahead of you.
Rule 9(b) of the COLREGS applies.

Now try this week’s question.
