Law) has determined that certain vessels of the VIRGINIA SSN Class are 
vessels of the Navy which, due to their special construction and 
purpose, cannot fully comply with certain provisions of the 72 COLREGS

purpose, cannot fully comply with the following specific provisions of 
72 COLREGS without interfering with their special function as a naval 
ship: Rule 23(a) and Annex I, paragraph 2(a)(i), pertaining to the
