RYA VHF Radio Initiative

Coastal Pursuits firmly believe that everyone who takes to coastal waters should have the correct knowledge to use their ships VHF radio at least in an emergency situation. The 1 day RYA radio course is the first and most important component to modern marine radio training. The second part is to gain your short range certificate or commonly known as the SCR radio license. This is achieved by taking a short test at the end of the 1 day RYA training course. When you complete the test you can use your radio for both emergency use and routine traffic use such as booking a marina berth. Very usefel to have the full range of your radio function at hand, but understanding emergency proceedures is all important.

In order to get more boat users trained to a useful level we now offer the RYA VHF SCR marine radio course for free to all our students who book any course with either of our training centres in Southampton & Lymington. We have even reduced the price of the course to just £49 to anone wishing to take the course.
