rya introduction to radar

An entry level radar course leading to RYA certification.


29 Apr 2022



This one-day course is best suited to beginners who have little to no experience using radar.

The intention is to provide a clear understanding of radar and how it can be used to aid navigation and avoid collisions.

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 of 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.

An RYA certificate is issued at the end of the course.
