One of the hardest parts of sailing for me is to learn all the regulations on who has the right of way in one situation versus another. Likewise, being able to identify what kind of boat is out there are night strictly by its lights escapes me too. This book is going a long way toward helping me overcome these problems. The text and images are clear and I'm actually having a good time learning with this book. Definitely worthwhile to read and keep on-board as a reference tool.
