Radar, Collision Avoidance, and Night Navigation – Virtual Class

Nov 17–18 | 6:30–8:00 PM | $75
Learn to interpret the images your radar is displaying with video radar exercises from our simulator. This class includes an introduction to true and relative motion, range, bearing, and what that means to you and your vessel. You will also learn how to mark targets and track other vessels. Then, build on your basic radar skills with simulated navigation exercises in fog and darkness. Use vectors, bearing lines, and range rings to navigate safely. You will learn to recognize other vessels, aids to navigation, harbor entrances, and hazards at night. The class features video from our state-of-the-art maritime simulator, which accurately demonstrates the lights of Puget Sound and the vessels you might encounter. This class is offered via Zoom.
