We proudly fly our GLCC burgees from the bow staffs of our power cruisers or from the spreaders of our sailboats. And we do get around. GLCC members take their boats far and wide on North America's five Great Lakes and their tributaries. We are found on the water from Duluth to Quebec; from Chicago to Buffalo; and from Toledo to Toronto. Some members are partial to the legendary North Channel, while others prefer cruising the secluded wilderness of Lake Superior's North Shore. The club has more than 2,500 members in the U.S. and Canada. We are known to be a friendly bunch of serious boaters who warmly welcome new members and are willing to share our love of the lakes and our knowledge about how to cruise them.
If you cruise the Great Lakes, you may see a distinctive burgee with five interconnected chain-links that form a complete circle. It identifies the boat's owners as members of the Great Lakes Cruising Club (GLCC).
