If you see the red light of another vessel off your starboard bow you will know that the ship is in the crossing from your starboard to port side and that should give way. That red side of the light is a signal to activate or stop. the white light means that a vessel is coming in from any direction two or more points behind the other ships of the beam. The overtaking vessel is considered the give way vessel and must keep clear of the boat it is overtaking.
