I’m new” to the boat you cut off. Sailing is a sport of rules, lights and sounds that communicate to other sailors your intentions. It is important to you and your crew that you are familiar with not only the traffic rules, but the lights and sounds that tell you what is going on around you. This quiz will test your knowledge of these important rules and keep you safe on the water.
