IRPCS Rule 5. Look-out

What is "IRPCS Rule 5. Look-out" ?

Today it means: Maintain a look-out at all times.

Every vessel shall maintain at all times, a proper lookout by sight and hearing as well as by all means available as appropriate to the circumstances. Consider this, if you have AIS, RADAR or cameras on-board you would be expected to, not only turn them on, but also know how to use them correctly; especially RADAR. Think what you need if you are caught out in fog especially if you are a lone sailor. Be prepared.
