IRPCS Rule 13. Overtaking.

What is "IRPCS Rule 13. Overtaking." ?

Today it means: Overtaking another vessel at sea.

Notwithstanding anything contained in other IRPCS rules, any overtaking vessel must keep clear of the vessel being overtaken. A vessel shall be deemed to be overtaking when coming on another vessel from a direction of more than 22.5 degrees abaft the beam. If in doubt, assume you are overtaking. Consider this, if you could see another vessels white stern light (if it were on) then you are in the overtaking zone so you must stand clear.
