Summary

From the author of the best-selling RYA Navigation Handbook, this audiobook is based on the RYA’s official title to support the RYA VHF Operator's Short Range Certificate examination. It expands upon the quick reference VHF Radio inc GMDSS book (G22) to assist with a deeper level of understanding which will help you pass the exam.

It details everything that sailors need to know about using VHF radios including how they work, the rules and regulations which govern it, and the procedures that must be followed.

In helping you prepare for the test, the audiobook links the easy-to-follow text to the syllabus to give you all you need to know to pass the exam.

The clear instruction make this complicated yet highly important subject much clearer and will help you learn the call procedures.

This is an essential learning tool and ideal background listening for anyone taking a VHF course.

Disappointing

This is just someone reading out the paper copy of the VHF handbook. Not particularly engaging. I had hoped for some more transcripts and communication examples, as would befit an audiobook.
There weren't even any chapter headings, which is unforgivable in a reference book.

A perfectly written book

A outstanding book that outlines core principles of what it means to be a true seamen coming of age like myself. I found great development and maturation in this book and I highly recommend it.
