|Rules of the Road Set|
Learning collision regulations can be a real challenge.
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.
|Nautical Flags Set|
Each card shows a flag of the International Code in colour on the face, with the signal letter or number and the meaning of the signal flag on the reverse.
The phonetic spelling of the letter is also shown, making the set doubly useful.
Although no longer required by some yachting authorities, professional seamen and navies still need a knowledge of flag signals.
|IALA Buoyage Set|
All mariners need a comprehensive knowledge of the buoyage rules and should be able instantly to identify a mark at first sight.
These Flash Cards show different buoys and navigational marks in colour, with the meaning and position, together with the light characteristics on the back of the card.
Cardinal marks and IALA Regions A & B are featured as well as the more recent preferred channel buoys.
|Morse Code Set|
The Morse Code was developed by Samuel F.B. Morse in 1844. Even after almost 170 years, it is still used today.
The code can be sent quickly over the telegraph, and is also useful for emergency signaling (SOS) with a radio, mirror, or flashlight.
This card set details all of the morse codes for the alphabet, numbers and additional punctuation symbols.
|Sound & Light Set|
This pack of Flashcards illustrates the signals made by ships at sea, and covers lights, fog signals and the usual distress and search and rescue signals.
These cards 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.
|Lights & Shapes Set|
An extremely useful set of cards which makes a difficult subject much easier.
Each card shows a vessel’s display of night-time navigation lights (in colour) or daytime shapes, as seen from your position.
In the case of the cards showing lights the vessel’s silhouette is just discernible.
The meaning is shown on the back of the cards as usual.
Learning the lights and shapes is a major part of a mariner’s study and Flashcards make it much easier to master.
