Solo sailing....are you breaking the laws?

Solo sailing....are you breaking the laws?

Sitting at the club a couple of nights ago at the bar a lively conversation was started about solo sailing on long passages. I was being told it was illegal to solo meaning there had to be diligent watch at all times. Being on this site I know many of you are single handing. So I did some research and found this that explains that there are ways to keep watch with one person on board. You will find the article on the safe-skipper website.

It was informative and hope this helps you solo sailors stay safe and legal.
