BSA-Port Starboard Right Of Way

Bite Sized Lessons : Port/Starboard Right Of Way…

By: Learn To Sail

We know that learning to sail can be overwhelming and there is a lot to take in. In an effort to help, we’ve created a series of “Bite Sized Lessons” taken straight out of our textbooks – Sailing Made Easy and Coastal Cruising Made Easy.

In this lesson we take a look at who has the right of way as two sailboats approach each other; one on starboard tack, the other on port tack.
