Buoyage and navigation

Many collisions between vessels result from a lack of understanding of the rules of safe navigation.

This section has information on the buoyage systems used in Victoria; the vessel navigation lights operators are required to display; and standard marine radio procedures.

The information in this section based on the requirements of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (1972) - COLREGs. Marine Safety Act and Marine Safety Regulations.
