As lesser manoeuvrable craft than Powerboats, PWCs or Sailboats, Kayaks are most often considered the Stand-On vessels.  Therefore, when encountering boats of greater manoeuvrability, maintain your course and speed to enable the give-way boat to take appropriate action.

Due to the susceptibility of kayaks to wakes from larger vessels, it is advisable to stay well clear of these larger craft, where possible.  Further, should you have to cross primary shipping channels, action should be taken to cross at right angles to expedite the crossing and minimize the danger.
