Due to Covid restrictions, the Marine VHF Course which was due to take place on July 9 and 10 has been posted to October 15 and 16 2021.
Hopefully, at that stage, the vaccination programme will have made it possible to hold a classroom-based course.
There are still a couple of spaces on the course. Boat owners will know that it’s very difficult to get this type of course anywhere and this is a chance to comply with regulations. They will also receive an official radio callsign and enable the Mayday function on their boats radio and EPIRB. The course is validated by the Marine Radio Affairs Unit of the Department of Transport.
The fee of €220 covers exam and licence fees.
If anyone would like to participate, you can contact Nicky Walsh at 086-2569636 or at email@example.com.
