Advanced Radar Course
Following the RYA 1 Day Radar Classroom Course, we have designed a bespoke 1 day PRACTICAL radar course which is designed to consolidate the theory learnt in the classroom.
Using the Raymarine equipment on our Millbrook, we cover many subjects including;
- Setting up the radar screen
- Basic controls
- Using the EBL and VRM
- Head up vs North Up
- Integration with the chartplotter and AIS Units.
- Using Radar for pilotage
- Positing Fixing by Radar
- ‘Blind’ Radar Navigation
This is a thoroughly recommended course for anyone who wants to gain a really good practical understanding of Radar. We will happily run this course on your boat providing it has a chartplotter/radar and ideally AIS.
Available on request. Please contact the office.
