International Port Traffic Signals IPTS
Signals may be found at locks, bridges and harbour entrances. Major ports will probably use the signals below. Smaller ports will not necessarily follow the IPTS conventions . They are not the same as CEVNI signals for inland waterways.
Make sure you know the meaning of local signs; for instance, there is a stop signal on the harbour wall at St Peter Port; but it does not apply to small vessels less than 15m in length! All local signals can be found in your almanac or pilot book.
The IPTS signals and International Code Flags are on my Signals / Distress / Mayday / SOLAS skills cards - see SKYSAIL NAVIGATION SKILLS CHARTS £2.50 each
