why we have AIS

Sailing Blog

This is why we have AIS and radar. In the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere, we find ourselves on a collision course with a freighter. Be both adjust course per the rules of the sea, COLREGs. We pass about 2 miles apart. When something is within 5 miles (the blue circle), all sorts of alarms sound on our boat.
