Courses are non-residential so accommodation is required in one of the many hotels or guest houses near the Centre. We can provide a list of recommendations.
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. The second day consolidates your theory knowledge and puts it into practice so you can use your radar confidently.
