Cruising Lake Huron

Lake Huron is blessed with many wonderful and interesting ports and small towns up and down both the Canadian and Michigan shorelines. The Lake Huron webinar will cover the ports and anchorages surrounding the main lake including the Straits of Mackinac, the east Michigan shore and the west Ontario shore. In this webinar Admiral Bayfield Award winner Craig Murchison will share his extensive cruising experiences throughout the Lake.

This webinar describes cruising along the Michigan and Canadian shores of Lake Huron and the Straits of Mackinac. Participants will get a chance to visit the many quality harbors and boater friendly towns up and down both shorelines.  Our presenter, Captain Craig Murchison, will be sharing his 25+ years of cruising experience in this area and his insights on the many great destinations available without traveling great distances or too far from shore. Craig will also be pointing out all of the towns presenting summer festivals along with other special and unique activities of interest cruising boaters.
