Rhumb Line -- News from Great Lakes

Rhumb Line

a course that keeps a constant bearing

The Rhumb Line for Great Lakes Sailing is clear: to provide a comprehensive listing of ports around the Great Lakes basin and articles that cover a broad range of topics of interest to sailors.

The purpose of Rhumb Line is to keep you up-to-date with new additions to Great Lakes Sailing and articles of interest in a brief, easy-to-scan and concise manner. I value not only your interest but also your time.

Toronto International Boat Show

This year, the Toronto International Boat Show is an all-virtual event. And this year, registration is free! I delayed in putting out a notice because I wasn't certain how such an effort would turn out. Indeed, there were some problems but they did get sorted out. Hiccups continue but they get dealt with as they arise. It has been a learning curve for all - especially me.

I am delivering 2 additional seminars - today, Friday, at 5:30 PM Eastern time and Sunday Jan 24th at 1:00PM Eastern time.

My earlier seminar went well according to the feedback that many viewers gave me. There were some technical issues but they were sorted out by some great staff.

What surprised me was the very high number of people who 'attended' - far higher than in-person seminars in the past.

If you have a chance, join me. As in years past, I am asking for people to evaluate the seminar - this time via a short email. In return, I will draw a name from each seminar and send out a free copy of our popular lag book - Complete Logbook For Cruising Sailors. The logbook is also available for purchase on the website.
