HBYC is now offering marine radio operator training. You can learn how to operate VHF if you only intend to sail in enclosed or costal waters, or you can also be trained in the use of HF if you're more adventurous and plan some longer adventures off shore or being part of an ocean racing crew.
The course will consist of two 3 hour evening sessions and a written exam for VHF. Those who want to gain the HF radio qualification will also attend the above sessions but will have an additional 3 hour session before their exam.
Upon completion participants will receive the relevant internationally recognised qualification issued by the Australian Maritime College on behalf of the Australian Communications and Media Authority.
VHF only - $185
VHF + HF - $285
