  • A boat on port tack (the wind coming from the left, the boom on the starboard) gives way to one on starboard tack (wind from right, boom on port).
  • A boat on Starboard tack with right of way may shout "Starboard" to a Port tack boat to help prevent a collision.
  • A boat to windward (closest to where the wind is coming from) gives way to a boat to leeward (the boat further away from the wind).
  • Within 3 boat lengths at a mark( the zone), the boat on the inside, nearest the mark, will usually need to be given room to go around the mark.
