taken all the actions to avoid any collision. However, being on a
"tiny" lake, the local boaters/windsurfers are more "space conscious",
more "well trained" and a number of them has asked me whether the
traditional sailing rules are applicable for kitesurfing and how?
They want to know the "rules" to be "in control" of the situation.
I guess they deserve a more "well thought out" answers than just "trust
me! I will try to avoid you at all cost" or "don't worry! I am the only
kitesurfer around here".
