RYA Radar Course

RYA Radar Training Course Eastbourne, East Sussex

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 aim of the 1 day RYA Radar Course is to teach students to use small boat Radar to assist decision-making in navigation, pilotage and collision avoidance. The course is conducted ashore using an RYA approved simulator.
