The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS for short) are the rules governing what lights are required on your vessel under different sailing conditions. In this blog we focus on an economical setup for boats between 7-12m (23-40ft), featuring Lopolight LED navigation lights.
