Quiz Answer

8 April, 2021

White over red is a vessel with a pilot aboard. (and I don’t mean an aircraft carrier). It can be regarded as another power driven vessel and with it showing its starboard side to you is the give way vessel. You are the stand on vessel and should hold your course, unless it it is a large ship in which case you should be prepared to make a change of course.

In the second scenario the other vessel is a boat engaged in fishing (other than trawling) and you should alter course to avoid it. Be careful. It may be towing nets on or just below the surface so keep a good distance and lookout when passing behind it.

Tips – A pilot will have a white cap over a red face.
Red over white, frying tonight.
