A one-day course giving 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.
Courses run from 0900 - 1700 hours on specified Saturdays.
A typical ScotSail Radar Day-Course includes theory and practice sessions and use of Official LightMaster Simulators, and real Radar Equipment.
