Browns Rule of the Road Manual

Apr 05 2013


This is the 19th edition of this book since it was first published in 1928. Another work from Brown, Son & Ferguson, this manual was written by Extra Master HH Brown and revised and expanded upon by Master Mariner Saurabh Sachhdeva.

The latest version incorporates STCW 2010 Manila Amendments, new buoyage and marks, latest MCA deck officer oral syllabus and several IMO routeing measures and guidance notices for conduct of safe navigation.

The required knowledge of the rule of the road at sea can only be acquired by careful study and observation and this book has been prepared to provide a means to this end.

For many years, the various editions have served as a guide to the examinations for the various grades of certificates of competency conducted by the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).

It is particularly suitable for study both at sea and ashore and the book’s sequence has been arranged to suit that purpose. The diagrams, questions and answers will be found to be helpful and informative, the publishers’ claim.

This book has been revised to include the updated COLREGS, including those annexed to IMO Resolution A910(22). The latest amendments came into force on 29th November 2003 as has the revised edition of the Maritime Buoyage System 2010, which have both been incorporated in the book.
