IRPCS rule 16. Action by a give way vessel.

What is "IRPCS rule 16. Action by a give way vessel." ?

Today it means: What to do if you need to GIVE WAY at sea.

Every vessel which is directed to keep clear or has calculated that it should "give way" to another vessel shall, so far as is possible, take early, clear and substantial action to keep well clear. Consider this, if you are unable to keep clear because of a third vessel or navigational hazard, you should make every effort to communicate this to the stand on vessel. If safe to do so, you should stop engines or luff up if necessary.
