About GLCCSchool

Welcome to GLCCSchool, now in its seventh year of operation with a new and refreshed curriculum and several additions to the GLCCSchool faculty.

Over the past six years GLCCSchool has served hundreds of students in the Great Lakes cruising community by providing a broad array of informative webinars addressing cruising-related topics and skills. Whether you're looking to learn more about the latest anchoring techniques and equipment, radar, boat maintenance, refrigeration, energy management, weather forecasting and similar topics, or are simply seeking experienced local knowledge on the hottest cruising areas in the Great Lakes, GLCCSchool has the webinar for you.  

GLCCSchool is an offering of the Great Lakes Cruising Club, a non-profit organization of roughly 2500 US and Canadian members dedicated to encouraging recreational boaters to safely explore our five beautiful Great Lakes and connecting waterways. As a non-profit, the Great Lakes Cruising Club strives to provide affordable and informative cruising-related webinars to the greatest number of cruising boaters possible, with webinar registration fees used to help offset operating costs.

GLCCSchool webinars are conducted by experienced GLCC-accredited sail or power boating colleagues and industry specialists including instructors such as past Cruising Club of America Commodore and Safety at Sea expert Sheila McCurdy, rigging expert Joe Parker, Starpath radar expert Larry Brandt, Great Lakes cruising experts like Past-Commodore J.E. Fordyce, GLCC Log Book Committee Chair Lou Brusca, experienced North Channel and Georgian Bay cruiser Jim Wooll, and other similarly qualified cruising authorities.

GLCCSchool webinars are open to everyone, whether they are a Great Lakes Cruising Club member or not. And members of the USPS and CPS, as well as the GLCC, can also take advantage of special webinar registration discounts. For further information on member discounts see the GLCC web site's GLCCSchool Page, the USPS web site (www.usps.org), or the CPS web site (http://www.cps-ecp.ca) respectively. 

All you need to participate in GLCCSchool webinars is a computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) with speakers, a browser, a reasonable speed internet connection and a desire to learn more about cruising our Great Lakes.
