    Not sure SUPs are vessels in terms of colregs anyway?
    Sometimes I feel its best to accord them the same 'rights' as swimmers...

    It's certainly a grey area. When I'm on a paddleboard I don't try to stand on to anyone .

    My sailing experience does give me an advantage compared to some other SUPers in anticipating what boats are likely to do and what action from me is likely to be most helpful.

    I read the OP with difficulty.
    In everyday parlance (nautical or otherwise) k is an abbreviation for kilo or thousand.
    Then 'c' - what was that? After trying to make sense of the OP I guessed it was the OP's private abbreviation for cable.
    He/she is entitled to use any odd abbreviation they wish, but they should tell us when they differ from standard.
    On the internet no one knows you are a donkey.

    Surely the OP would have spotted the string of onions around his neck and the blue smoke from his Gauloise and altered course accordingly?

    Point of order: if you met the XOD fleet in Chichester harbour you would be forgiven for thinking that the only rule that actually applies is that everyone else is in the wrong.

    May be simply familarity but I and obviously at least some others, knew that c meant cable, and that a cable is 1/10th of a Nm, 608 feet, 200 yards or so, although you do have a point. My 5011 includes the cable as a unit of distance, but states no abbreviation for it.

    Thought the correct abbreviation for cable was "ca".
