Advanced Radar

We can combine the 1-day RYA Radar course with a second day afloat on our Advanced Radar course on our motorboat taking your radar usage and understanding to the next level. On the water we put the skills into practice and learn how to deal with practical issues afloat. This second day consolidates your theory knowledge and puts it into practice so you can use your radar confidently.
