Are you a Chesapeake Bay sailor considering a sailing cruise in the Great Lakes this spring or summer? Webinars are an easy, affordable way to learn more about the area without leaving the comfort of your Chesapeake Bay home.
The non-profit Great Lakes Cruising Club (GLCC) offers GLCCSchool, which provides informative webinars for sailors and other boaters who intend to cruise the Great Lakes. GLCCSchool webinars are open to everyone, whether a GLCC member or not. If you’re seeking local knowledge from experienced sailors and boaters, check out these webinars, which cover topics such as anchoring techniques and equipment, local weather forecasting, AIS, diesel engines, and boat maintenance. Additional webinars focus on specific lakes or certain areas, such as Lake Superior’s Apostle Islands, a popular charter destination.
The GLCC has approximately 2500 members in the U.S. and Canada. The organization is dedicated to encouraging recreational sailors and boaters to safely explore the five Great Lakes and connecting waterways. Webinars are conducted by experienced GLCC-accredited sail or power boating colleagues and industry specialists. Registration fees help offset operating costs. Most webinars cost in the $20 to $45 range. Members of the GLCC, the Canadian Power Squadron, and the U.S. Power Squadron are entitled to discounts using a special code provided in the members-only section of their respective web pages.
