RYA Radar Course (CLASSROOM) - £110
Courses – Description
Course Overview – Radar
A one-day course giving you an understanding of radar as an aid to navigation and collision avoidance.
Cruising boats increasingly have radar on board. The International Regulations for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea state that if you have a radar, you must know how to use it.
Radar is probably the most versatile of all electronic navigation aids, but the best results are only obtained when you know how to use all the functions correctly. It is not an all seeing eye, and can easily mislead those who do not understand its controls, allow for its limitations, or interpret its picture.
The classroom will be the ABC Radar training room at Universal Marina.
Instructor – Radar
The Instructor will be a shorebased Radar Instructor qualified to run the course with an RYA validation.
Course Duration – Radar
The course is one full day from 09:30 hrs till 17:00 hrs.
