Sure...he supposedly just took over the watch and probably assumed the last guy knew he would clear before the Summer Wind could get there..

But Rule 15 doesn't apply if one vessel is IN a narrow channel and you re just crossing it...the vessel if using and required to use the channel is the stand on to ALL vessels crossing the channel (which then negates rule 15...and this is the classic reason). If you are crossing the channel you must be aware of vessels navigating in it and are required to stay in them...as they are the stand on vessel no matter who is right or left.
