Webinar Broadcasts

All classes are interactive and presented live over the internet. Unless otherwise indicated, webinar sessions run between 60 and 90 minutes. Classes are very affordable. As a non-profit service to the Great Lakes boating community, our sponsoring organization, the Great Lakes Cruising Club, tries to keep registration costs as low as possible while covering presentation hosting and instructional costs.
