  • What is the hardest aspect of learning/remembering COLREGS for you?

    Hello all. I have started to develop study guides and apps for seafarers. My first concentration is the COLREGS. My guide aims to focus on student retention of the rules.

    What problems (if any) do you experience in remembering the order of the rules, numbers, titles, and layout as a whole?
    Any insight on how long it took (or is currently taking) you to learn them to industry standard would also be much appreciated.

    I look forward to a bit of back and forth on this topic.

    To quote from MGN 69:

    a thorough knowledge of the content, application and intent of the International Regulations forPreventing Collisions at Sea;

    emphasis mine

    It's easy to 'learn the rules', get every word right etc... but knowing how they interact in the fluid reality of collision avoidance is the key issue.

    Rule retention isn't a goal, in my opinion, its simply a stepping stone on the way to understanding application and intent. Be very interested to see an app that can address those.

      A series of animations, and you have to select the applicable rules as the situation develops?
