Radar

Using our state of the art simulator to produce life like situations enables students to practice collision avoidence techniques in the classroom coupled with practical tuition on our own 48mile radar on the school training boat fitted with radar overlay on the plotter and even AIS (automatic identification system)enabling a client to go away and put the knowledge to practical use on their own boat.
