  • Mike already sits as Port Captain for Florida Keys, Fla. & Mackinaw City, Mich.

  • We’ve had an exceptional boating season after bouncing back from the pandemic. We were able to hold our annual summer Rendezvous again!  This time in beautiful Mackinaw City, Mich. (H-76.5).

  • One of the highlights of this past summer's Great Lakes Cruising Club Rendezvous was a Coast Guard Helicopter rescue demonstration. Impressive seamanship and piloting by the USCG! This great video taken, edited and narrated by GLCC Treasurer and Past Commodore Niels Jensen captures it well.

  •      Lou Bruska, our newly appointed Port Captain for Holland Harbor & Lake Macatawa, Mich.

  • ALL Great Lakes Cruising Club members,      This email to the Foundation, which we've forwarded, is from one of our recently approved Grant applications. The original request was for funds to purchase a couple of 'header,' docks to launch the creation of a marina at the Silver Islet Harbour (S-128) on Lake Superior. Fortunately, our "seed," money helped spark an abundance of interest and financial support, to this worthy project. Their success so far has even exceeded their expectations, and they are now well ahead of schedule with their development of this harbour. 

  • Newly appointed Port Captains Rob Hillman and his wife Kelly took up sailing as a retirement adventure.

  • Effective April 20, 2022, the USCG has updated its requirements for marine fire extinguishers to required that they be replaced 12 years after manufacture.  The number of fire extinguishers needed is determined by the size of your boat.

  • The GLCC is happy to report that effective May 20

  • Bob Allenick has quite the range of boating experience. Let's read a little about our newly appointed Port Captain for Cleveland, Ohio (East, E-10) and wish him a hearty welcome...

  •      Have you ever been chatting with a fellow boater about the GLCC who is potentially interested in joining? Many of us do so while we’re cruising or strolling the docks. So why should this potential member have to wait until a boat show to get a discount?
