Coast Pilot to include navigation rules

Apr 19, 2018 by Triton Staff

The U.S. Coast Guard and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have teamed up to incorporate navigation rules into NOAA’s U.S. Coast Pilot publications.

The amalgamated International Regulations for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea (72 COLREGS) and the Inland Navigation Rules will now be included in the U.S. Coast Pilot, according to the USCG Office of Navigation Systems and NOAA Office of Coast Survey. The U.S. Coast Pilot publications already include the Coast Guard’s Vessel Traffic Service regulations.

“Adding the Navigation Rules into the Coast Pilot conveniently places three essential navigation safety publications into one easily available publication, available in either bound hard copy or electronic format,” stated Capt. Mary Ellen Durley, chief of the Coast Guard Office of Navigation Systems.
