Should Sail give way to Ski-boat?

Does this mean a vessel under sail should give way to a sportsboat towing a waterskier?

Your opinions please.

We had this very situation in the Sound a couple of days ago (I gave way; as I always do to anything when I am towing a skier. The possible consequences of 'pushing the point' being too 'final' to risk + maybe I should give way?)

You're not really restricted maneoverability though are you - you can still turn left and right pretty quick, stop, reverse etc. "Restricted maneoverability" IMHO is for vessels that would be unable to turn away from a collision course themselves. This could include dredgers, vessels restricted by draught, large ships, fishing trawlers, etc.

The one that does occasionally amuse me though is yachts that are motor sailing - they then don't have right of way any more but think (hope?) no one notices they're motoring under power with the sails up. Been guilty of that myself on occasion

Yeh, spent far too much of my childhood wallowing along on my parents boat at 5 knots, then raced Laser 4000's for a couple of years before deciding it's all a bit too sedate for me.

running lavtha, an earthquake, a 135mph chase in a classic GTO whilst listening to AC DC @ 300db............would likely be too sedate for you!

What is lavtha? You are right though, 135mph would be a bit sedate - the ultima is quicker than that.

Yeh, I nearly said that, but since my garage is pretty warm and dry, they're not getting particularly rustier, unlike your nob.
