TNT 20th October 2020 @ 19:30 HOURS ~ Collision Regulations by John Leahy

Hi ,

Firstly welcome to our next Tuesday Night Talk (TNT!) The TNT’s commenced on 06th October 2020 over the autumn and winter. Please log in early to check your connection and chat with like minded friends, new and old alike. Please remember that John will open Zoom at 19:00 hrs for member chat and audio tests. The talks will commence at the new time of 19:30hrs
We will try to fill every second Tuesday with either a speaker event or a navigational tutorial style talk. Indeed talks on any subject of interest to the cruising community are welcome. To that end, we invite suggestions from members who either have a good subject to discuss or know someone who does!

The talk will cover the Collision Regulations COLREGS and buoyage


“All our tutorials are fun to take part in and meant to only concentrate on things that may actually happen to you in the real world of cruising. We will avoid any theoretical or hypothetical subjects, such as working out secondary ports to the nearest cm of tide.”

We will also refer to the electronic version of the same subject so that you can see how to do things the IPAD/Electronic way, as well as the more traditional route.
