Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Quick learning & revision tool, over 100 graphics, for all seafarers - this sailing, boating & marine app provides all sailors, boaters & fishermen with essential quick reference knowledge to help them identify vessels and the activities they are engaged in, as specified by the ColRegs.
Whether out on the water or on shore, in daylight, darkness or poor visibility, simply open the app and search the rules in seconds to find the appropriate ColRegs rule and definition.
This application has been downloaded & used daily by thousands of seafarers in the USA, Great Britain, Australia, France, Canada, New Zealand & over 50 other countries
- No internet connection required.
- Simple, easy to use navigation for quick reference.
- Every rule & definition available at the touch of a finger.
- Expertly drawn illustrations accompanied by clear, concise descriptions of all the rules.
The app has 4 sections:
1. The Nav Lights section features graphics & descriptions of the lights that are displayed by different vessels at night.
2. The Day Shapes section features graphics & descriptions of the shapes that are displayed during daylight.
3. A quiz in the Test Yourself section features multiple combinations of lights & shapes to test your knowledge.
4. The ColRegs section features the rules in full.
Use the Test Yourself section to check your knowledge and application of the rules. If you answer any incorrectly, go back and read through the rule again.
A good understanding of the ColRegs is essential for all people who go to sea in sailing and power boating craft. A candidate for Yachtmaster exams should be aiming to achieve at least 80% pass marks.
ColRegs Nav Lights & Shapes helps boaters identify the types of vessel and the activities they are engaged in at sea, as specified by the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea. This learning tool covers Part C: Lights and Shapes, Rules 20-31 of the ColRegs.
Our other app in this series: “ColRegs Rules Of The Road” covers "Steering & Sailing Rules" and "Sound and Light Signals" sections as specified in the IRPCS.

What's New in Version 1.3
New look interface. Additional quiz questions to test you more. Now also available for iPad.
Professionally done, with good clear info.
Easy and intuitive to navigate and use, and what's more the graphics are the best I've seen in similar apps. I saw it had good reviews from others and wasn't disappointed when I downloaded. A great app for anyone going out on the water, and anyone learning for exams.
I purchased this app (and its sister app "Rules if the Road") to study for a USCG nav rules exam. It wasn't that helpful. The self-test feature works okay, but doesn't allow you to keep track of your progress. Most annoying for me is that one must purchase two separate apps to cover the entire COLREGs, and US Inland Rules are not Included. (Okay, I know it is a UK app.) One is better off simply studying the COLREGS itself.
Great - wish I’d found this before
Comprehensive info on navlights and day shapes with a useful test section. Covers a lot, and has very clear diagrams of how the lights will look, as well as the written official regs. Well worth it I reckon.
