Radar is becoming increasingly common on small boats. Merchant vessels make intensive use of radar and understanding how it influences their operations makes an important contribution to navigational safety. If a boat carries a radar set, there is a legal obligation to use it under some conditions.
The Club has a number of desktop computers equipped with radar simulation software to aid learning.
Ability after the course:
A basic understanding of Radar and set controls, plotting, collision avoidance and navigation techniques.
