At C-MASTERS, we have created a selection of 'must do' courses. After several years of providing training we know which topics and skills are considered complex by students. Most of these topics are covered in the RYA shorebased courses and during practical courses. However, a more intensive training is needed to become a confident skipper.
Electronic navigation aids such as radar have undergone a rapid technical evolution in the past years. Their functionality has become excellent and the user friendliness has improved dramatically. Nevertheless, it's not about how colourful and nice a radar screen looks. It's all about you getting the relevant information out of it, and knowing how to interpret it when at sea. A radar is still one of the most important tools on board for position finding and collision avoidance in difficult situations.
This course is a 'must do' for skippers and navigators who wish to learn using a radar as an aid for fixing positions and assessing situations avoiding risk of collision.
During this course you will learn how to operate a radar system, and convert the available information on the screen to real-time situations.
This two day masterclass is a combination of our theoretical course and practical hands-on training, recommended for skippers if a radar is still relatively new to you.
The training includes making real passages on board of one of our yachts while working with radar during fictive night sailing and restricted visibility situations.
This Radar Operator Training by C-MASTERS is unique, and not available at other training centres.
During day one, you will learn:
During day two, you will practice operating a radar on board for:
We recommend the RYA shorebased courses on navigation.
The RYA Navigation handbook is very useful to learn more about navigating using a radar system.
I am very satisfied with the RYA Radar course and the extra masterclass day
to practice the use of radar on board on the water.
