Offshore Cruising Ireland – Radar Training Course

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailOffshore Cruising Ireland is a Dublin based Sail Training Centre that delivers shore based training courses from the Basic Navigation & Safety course to the more advanced Yachtmaster Offshore courses. The RADAR course we deliver is the RYA approved course that covers the knowledge and skills required to use modern day radar equipment on seagoing leisure craft. If you have radar fitted to your vessel you are required by law to know how to use it. Radar is one of the most useful safety assets on a small boat, but needs knowledge and practice with the radar controls, and awareness of its limitations, to make it useful. Skippers are reminded that they have a duty of care to the safety of their crew. The Radar course includes the use of computers with radar simulator so students can get experience in the classroom adjusting the radar instrument controls to read the screen display. The radar simulator has exercises showing how ships would appear on the screen in many different scenarios like crossing vessels, overtaking vessels and imminent collisions. Course fees (€150) includes the following items: 1. In person classroom instruction 2. RYA course book, workbook and class notes 3. Use of RYA approved RADAR Simulator in class 4. Radar course exercises 5. RYA Course Completion Certificate.  To reserve a place on course ring Anthony Keane 086-1740-943 email: anthony@offshorecruising.ie  For more details Click link
