Question: 1 / 50

Under what conditions must sailboats less than 7m in length display lights?

Only when part of a regatta

If possible, otherwise carry a white light ready to use

Sailboats less than 7m in length are required to carry a white light ready to use while underway, unless it is part of a regatta. This option ensures safety for both the sailboat and other vessels by providing visibility in low-light conditions. Option A is incorrect because it only applies to sailboats participating in a regatta, not all sailboats less than 7m in length. Option C is incorrect because all vessels are required to display lights when underway during the night or in low-visibility conditions. Option D is incorrect because sailboats do not need to display sidelights constantly, only when in use at night or in low-visibility conditions.

No lights are required

Constantly display red and green sidelights
