An essential hands-on safety and knowledge course for anyone using modern marine electronics.  You will learn basic theory and operation of Radar, GPS/chart plotter, auto pilot, and VHF radio through classroom exercises and underway in Newport Harbor.  

Using the electronics aboard Nordic Star (at the dock) you will gain confidence entering waypoints and routes and learn how to interface GPS/chart plotter and auto pilot. Your second class is underway aboard OCC’s Tiara 31 “Mia Lucia” for an evening cruise through Newport Harbor. 

Both Nordic Star and Mia Lucia are fitted out with new Furuno electronics, including touch screens.  Nordic star has three Radar displays for student use, along with her big ship’s Radar. Basic time speed and distance calculation methods will be introduced.
