Издание на английском языке
Learning, understanding and remembering the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGs) is essential for anyone venturing onto the water.
But with the COLREGs stretching to over 12,000 words, this is no small task. This is where this excellent book comes in. The vital, but dry, document is bought to life (as well as included in full).
The intention of each rule and how it should be applied when at sea is explained. Personal anecdotes make everything real and remembering different aspects of the Regulations is made easier through mnemonics and other devices.

- need to pass an exam

Paul Boissier was formerly a senior Admiral in the Royal Navy and has spent much of his professional life at sea in a wide variety of vessels, commanding two submarines and a warship. He is also a very experienced yachtsman and has cruised extensively. These perspectives, from the cockpit of a yacht and the bridge of a large ship, make him the ideal author for a COLREGs guide that will be equally useful to leisure boat users and professional mariners.
Paul is currently the Chief Executive of the RNLI, the charity that saves life at sea, and operates over 340 lifeboats around the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
