International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea
The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea COLREGs are published by the International Maritime Organization IMO and set out, among other things, the "rules of the road" or navigation rules to be followed by ships and other vessels at sea to prevent collisions between two or more vessels. Although rules for navigating vessels inland may differ, the international rules specify that they should be as closely in line with the international rules as possible. In the United States, the rules for vessels navigating inland are published alongside the international rules. The Racing Rules of Sailing , which govern the conduct of yacht and dinghy racing under the sanction of national sailing authorities which are members of the International Sailing Federation ISAF , are based on the COLREGs, but differ in some important matters such as overtaking and right of way close to turning marks in competitive sailing. Prior to the development of a single set of international rules and practices, there existed separate practices and various conventions and informal procedures in different parts of the world, as advanced by various maritime nations.

Adoption: 20 October ; Entry into force: 15 July One of the most important innovations in the COLREGs was the recognition given to traffic separation schemes - Rule 10 gives guidance in determining safe speed, the risk of collision and the conduct of vessels operating in or near traffic separation schemes. The first such traffic separation scheme was established in the Dover Strait in It was operated on a voluntary basis at first but in the IMO Assembly adopted a resolution stating that that observance of all traffic separation schemes be made mandatory - and the COLREGs make this obligation clear. There are also four Annexes containing technical requirements concerning lights and shapes and their positioning; sound signalling appliances; additional signals for fishing vessels when operating in close proximity, and international distress signals.
For example, a sailing vessel, must keep clear of a vessel constrained by her draft. But how does she know that this is so? It becomes easy once we realize that the vessel constrained by her draft and the sailing vessel must both display typical lights and shapes.
