Learn new skills and improve your boating abilities with free radar training courtesy of Raymarine.

The course, which focuses on radar, will be run by qualified RYA instructor Alan Watson and will take place at Raymarine’s Head Office in Portsmouth on 29 February, 14 March and 11 April from 9am to 1pm.

It aims to give a good understanding of radars, and Alan will be on hand to offer technical advice and demonstrations.

The RYA instructor says: “Radar is an essential tool for collision avoidance, especially in poor visibility, but only if you know how to use it and are able to interpret the information it gives you. With some simple rules, and a little experience, radar can be a real friend to ensure safety at sea.”

There are 10 places per session. To book your place go to www.raymarine.co.uk/radartraining or email info@raymarine.com.
