    Hmmm... No.
    One might assume that a person attending a traditional navigation list might
    1) be interested in International rules
    2) be operating a sailing vessel.
    In this case, the windward vessel keeps clear and passing side signals are
      not given, rather, a turn to port/starboard indication is provided in
    close quarters.
    Now who's right?
