Radar is an extremely useful feature of boating but only if you know how to use it. The RYA 1 day Radar course is ideal to make the most of this essential tool.
RYA RADAR COURSE
LOCATION VILAMOURA ALGARVE PORTUGAL
Duration 1 Day
If you have a radar then only after you’ve done this course will you really appreciate both how complex the radar set actually is and how amazingly useful it is if you know how to use the features built into the sets.
Radar is an excellent item of kit to have on board a craft – but only if you really know how to maximise its potential The one day RYA Radar course helps you to understand how radar works and make the most of it for collision avoidance and navigation.
Radar has a variety of uses including navigation and collision avoidance, indeed the ColRegs state that you must use all means available to you to avoid the possibility of a collision. Therefore, if your craft is fitted with a Radar then you must use it and by implication know how to use it to its full potential, getting the most from a radar is a matter of understanding its potential and being able to ‘set it up’ and modify the settings for the conditions you are experiencing.
We do have courses running monthly and are also available to arrange tailored schedules for your personal needs. In general the courses need a minimum of 4 people to allow us to operate them. Please contact us for availability and scheduling advice.
