« back to classes page
Prerequisite:  Coastal Navigation 1 recommended.

A course designed for cruisers who want to make the most of their radar. Competencies include use of rain and sea clutter to fine tune the radar picture, use of radar scales to see large and small vessels in time to act, determining a target vessel’s bearing and range at the Closest Point of Approach (CPA), and choosing an alteration of course that will open CPA while making the course change readily apparent to other vessels. This course will include piloting/navigating by radar ranges and best use of radar in low visibility. It will include the use of paper maneuvering boards to work out relative motion and CPA.

Class Size: Min 5 - Max 10 students
