RYA Radar Course

Course Duration

  • 1 day

Recommended Previous Experience:

  • None

Course Overview:

  • Setting up and using the set effectively as a navigation aid and for collision avoidance.

Radar is the most versatile of all electronic navigation aids. It can, however, easily mislead those who do not know how to adjust its controls, allow for its limitations or interpret its picture.

The course content was developed by the Royal Yachting Association to meet the needs of small boat operators, both power and sail.

Delivered by qualified radar operators who are experienced deck officers holding internationally recognized maritime qualifications, you will gain “hands on” training in small groups limited to six persons. You will gain the confidence to navigate by radar in conditions of restricted visibility and the knowledge to interpret what you are seeing on your radar screen.
