IRPCS Rule 9. Narrow channels

What is "IRPCS Rule 9. Narrow channels" ?

Today it means: Small vessels keep to the edges.

A vessel proceeding along a narrow channel or fairway shall keep as near to the outer limit of the channel as is safe and practicable. A vessel less than 20 metres or engaged in fishing shall not impede the passage of another vessel and any vessel should avoid anchoring in the channel if at all possible. Consider this, smaller vessels should stay just inside or, when necessary and safe to do so, just outside the channel. Larger vessels may not have the option of moving out of the way
