Marine Radar Operator's Certificate

Radar provides the ability to see targets in the dark or in poor visibility, targets that may not be seen with the human eye. International regulations state that if you have radar on board your yacht, you must know how to use it.
At YachtCom we have a real Raymarine C120 navigation display unit which is used during the radar course.
This RYA certificated course will teach you how to get the best out of your radar unit.
