This 1 day course helps you to understand radar as an aid to navigation and collision avoidance.
Cruising boats increasingly have radar on board. The International Regulations for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea broadly state that if you have a radar you must know how to use it. First Class Sailing's RYA Radar Course is the ideal way to do this.
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 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.
