Thanks and Happy cruising

Yes...normally in open water rule 15 would have applied and Miss Susan would have been the stand on vessel.

But with the Summer Wind requiring the use of the channel and in it...if the Miss Susan is crossing a narrow channel or fairway...she must look both ways before crossing...a vessel crossing can not impede the safe passage of a vessel in and necessarily using that channel
