RYA Radar - 1 day course

Radar provides the ability to see targets in the dark or in poor visibility, targets that may not be seen with the human eye.
International regulations state that if you have radar on board your yacht, you must know how to use it.
At YachtCom we have a real Raymarine C120 navigation display unit which is used during the radar course.

Customer feedback

Richard Mortimore said: "The yachtcom on-line packages including the 1-24 lessons are excellent, and sound preparation for the 4 day course. Bob's skilled training technique along with the superb supporting material and equipment, leads you to feeling a certain level of confidence by the exam day. It was great to meet the other candidates and exchange stories and Bob has many to support your knowledge and understanding. With Bob's impressive technical mind we all came away with alternative, better and less expensive, solutions to our onboard coms. Thank you Bob and Claire for making it such an enjoyable few days and getting me through my LRC."
