The Colregs and the Princess Alice
1 Marine Navigation Consultant, Arundel, UK
ABSTRACT: There is currently considerable interest in the international regulations for preventing collisions at sea (the Colregs). Suggestions for changes are made, but their validity is difficult to assess because, apart from some very limited simulator experiments, there is no possibility of testing new proposals before they are introduced. Given this situation, it is instructive to look back at past times when the Colregs were somewhat different so that we may, at least, avoid some of the mistakes of the past. In this paper, the author?s aim is to look at the lessons that might be learned from one, particularly tragic collision between the Princess Alice and the Bywell Castle in 1878.
