Anyone wishing to navigate mainland European inland waters now needs a CEVNI endorsement to the International Certificate of Confidence (ICC), which can be obtained by passing the appropriate RYA examination. These Flip Cards, printed in colour, are designed to help learn the signs, symbols and lights displayed, which form a major part of CEVNI regulations.
36 cards showing the Morse symbol, both letters and numerals, with the back of the card giving the meaning. Also in the set is a useful instruction card. For those mariners needing a knowledge of Morse these Flip Cards have proved to be a quick and simple method of learning and checking.
These cards show the view forward from the deck of various vessels (power, sailing and fishing) of developing traffic situations at sea. In each case the mariner has to decide the correct course of action to navigate his vessel through the hazard. The reverse of the card gives the proper course and also quotes the relevant collision rule.
This pack of Flip Cards illustrates the signals made by ships at sea, and covers lights, fog signals and the usual distress and search and rescue signals. They differ from the Lights and Shapes cards in that they show signals rather than navigation signs. The meaning is shown on the back of the card as usual.
