Upcoming classes

Looking for the cruise of a lifetime? Do you dream of extending the short boating season of the Great Lakes? This refreshed 2024 Edition webinar will show how you can boat all year around by following the seasons along the Great loop. Join "Gold Loopers" and GLCCSchool instructors Deb and Mike Hervey as they share tips and suggestions to take the mystery out of the trip and provide the confidence for you to do the loop too.
The recent discovery of a steamer loaded with salt brought to the surface the importance of Great Lakes salt production to the world. Piping up from a 400 million year old ocean deep beneath the Earth, salt manufacturers found high quality minerals in New York and Michigan. Over 70 ships were lost carrying salt to markets like Superior, Wisconsin and Chicago.
