Great Lakes school adds webinars

The Great Lakes Cruising Club School expanded its webinar curriculum for 2012-13, giving boaters a choice of more than 40 tutorials conducted by club-accredited sail or power boating colleagues and industry specialists.

Live, on-screen presentations with visual aids provide an opportunity for participants to interact with the instructor and each other in a virtual classroom. Sessions typically run for 60 to 90 minutes and require only a computer with speakers, a browser and a reasonable-speed Internet connection.

This year's topics include introductions to several new subjects, such as Solar Power; Safety for Cruising Couples; Using (and when not to use) Weather GRIBs; Fiberglass and Epoxy Repair; and Radar-Assisted Navigation, along with a newly extended complement of Great Lakes cruising webinars and related tutorials such as marine weather; negotiating locks; boat and engine maintenance; energy management; provisioning; and refrigeration.

The webinars are open to club members and nonmembers.
