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.
