    It seems like most of us on the Great Lakes just finished putting our boats away for the winter. But, as all cruisers know, it’s never too early to start thinking about launching again in the spring. For years, part of the spring launch ritual was the annual GLCC April Launch meetings.

Hold the dates May 5–7 for our Spring Launch meetings at the Marriott Fallsview Hotel in scenic Niagara Falls, Ont.
