IRPCS Rule 10. Traffic separation schemes

What is "IRPCS Rule 10. Traffic separation schemes" ?

Today it means: Avoid crossing a traffic separation scheme.

Vessels, so far is practicable, shall avoid crossing a traffic separation scheme, but if obliged to do so, shall cross as near as possible at right angles to the flow of traffic. Vessels of less than 20 metres or sailing vessels shall not impede the safe passage of any power driven vessel following the traffic lane.Consider this, the rule clearly states that, in a traffic separation scheme, power does NOT always give way to sail. If in any doubt, give way early.
