RYA Specialist Course

Required (by law) for all those who wish to operate a VHF marine radio and for those wishing to take a Yachtmaster exam, this one day course covers all the procedures that must be adhered to when using the VHF unit, including the Digital Selective Calling option which is found on most modern yachts.
