Answer to last weeks quiz

16 December, 2021

Your crew is wrong about it being a racing mark.
It is a Temporary Wreck marker.You won’t see these appear on a chart as they are used temporarily whilst the decision is made over a sunken boat. They sometimes have the word ‘Wreck’ written on them.
Typically, the buoys are used for the first 24-72 hours.  After which the boat may be recovered, or perhaps an isolated danger mark used.
May be worth checking for any Local Notices to Mariners for the area.
Be aware that in local waters more local variations might be used.
