10 CEVNI NOTES DEFINITIONS Small craft – under 20 m in length If you want another CEVNI test download here:DEFINITIONSSmall craft – under 20 m in lengthNormal craft – over 20 m in lengthSmall craft usually give way to normal craftRight bank – on the right when proceeding downstreamLeft bank – on the left when proceeding downstreamWaterways – Class 1 are rivers; Class 2 are canals and lakesUpstream vessel – is proceeding up the river to its source, or ascending in a lock.Downstream vessel – is proceeding away from the source of a river, or descending in a lock.Take care with these, it’s the direction of travel, not the relative position).
11 CEVNI NOTES RULES WHEN BOATS MEET ‘Give way’ and ‘stand on’ – are defined as in in IRPCS.Normal vessels travelling downstream have priority over vessels travelling upstream, but the vessels travelling upstream may choose which side to give way on.If an upstream vessel decides to leave a course to starboard, it displays a blue board by day (with a scintillating (60 flashes per second) blue light by night) on its starboard side.Downstream vessels acknowledge by displaying a similar board on their starboard side.Hydrofoils and hovercraft give way to other vessels.CEVNI Crossing rules are similar to IRPCS. However, a vessel on the starboard side of a marked channel shall maintain its course.The standard lights for motor vessels and sailing craft are similar to IRPCS, also Restricted in Ability to Manoeuvre, Not Under Command, Fishing, Diving.
