Gotta love the Great Lakes!
(If wind on port side, keep out of the way.)
(a) When two sailing vessels are approaching one another...
(i) when each has the wind on a different side, the vessel which has the wind on the port side shall keep out of the way of the other;
(ii) when both have the wind on the same side, the vessel which is to windward shall keep out of the way of the vessel which is to leeward..
