Right of Way

A reminder of why sailors need to give way to the commercial vessels on the water.

 

Don't forget to leave at least 0.5 mile clearance when passing in front of large vessels.

 

Large vessels in the River Tyne cannot manoevre easily to avoid other craft.  Please ensure that you maintain sufficient clearance in front of all vessels visiting the Port of Tyne.

Sailors must keep clear at all times whether racing or not.
