"Rules Of The Road" on the water

When Two Boats Meet

When two boats are approaching each other, one has the right of way and is called the stand on boat. The other boat is called the give way boat.

The give way boat must make an early and obvious manoeuvre so there can be no confusion. The give way boat must pass astern of (behind) the stand on boat, while the stand on boat maintains the same course and speed.
