RYA Radar

How many boaters don't actually know how to use their Radar?
 
This one-day course gives you an understanding of 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 state that if you have a radar, you must know how to use it.

 

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.

 

Course topics include:

 

  • how the radar set works 

  • how its adjustments and features affect the way it works 

  • target definition 

  • radar reflectors 

  • types of radar display 

  • radar plotting 

  • the use of radar in navigation and collision avoidance ​
