Tim Bartlett's RYA VHF Handbook on sale now

Tim Bartlett’s RYA VHF Handbook was launched on Friday at the Southampton Boat Show. These days, boating and VHF Marine radios go hand-in-hand, and a proper knowledge of VHF is increasingly important to maintain safety at sea. Tim advocates a straightforward approach to understanding the subject, saying: ‘The RYA VHF Handbook approaches the subject by breaking it down into easy to understand chapters. In this way it enables the reader to understand how VHF works, whilst also understanding the practical skills needed today to use the technology whilst out on the water.”

The book is good background reading for anyone planning to go to sea and is a useful accompaniment to the RYA Marine Radio Short Range Certificate Course.

Available now, the RYA VHF Handbook costs £11.99 and is available to order from the RYA website: www.rya.org.uk or by phone on: 0845 3450372
