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

Barry Edmonds said: "The online training ( prior to the course ) was invaluable, well presented, clear, logical and something to complete at 'leisure'. The 3 day(+) course was excellent with both content and presentation, made all the better for interacting with others under Bobs watchful, and humorous eye. Outstanding in every respect. Thank you.( and thank goodness I don't have to sit the exam again)."
