We are pleased to announce that registration for GLCCSchool classes is open again! However, in order to accommodate our students who may not have had enough time to register for this week's classes, we have rescheduled Cruising Lake Superior's Canadian Shore to March 21, Introduction to Marine Radar to March 28, and Marine Refrigeration to April 4. We are delighted to be back in business and look forward to continuing with this year's diverse curriculum.
It is probably safe to say that everyone in the Great Lakes boating community is concerned about the drop in water levels. If that’s true, it’s time to register for the 40th annual Regional Dinner Meeting at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club on Friday, April 26, 2013.
