This is a one-day course RYA Radar Course. The course is aimed at anyone who needs to learn to set up and use the set effectively as a navigation aid and for collision avoidance.
Did you know that the IRPCS (international Regulation of Prevention of Collision at Sea), says that if you have a Radar onboard you must use it?
Radars are a common feature onboard recreational and small commercial vessels and yet are not always used to its full potential. In fact, many people fear turning it on because they don’t know how to use it properly.
The course content was developed by the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) to meet the needs of small boat operators, both power and sail.
This is “hands-on” training in small groups limited to 5 participants. You will gain the confidence to navigate by radar in conditions of restricted visibility and the knowledge to interpret what you are seeing on your radar screen.
