Upcoming Webinars

With some upcoming AGLCA events canceled, we're ramping up our webinar series to bring some informational content to our members.

Webinars are being held Thursday evenings. Details and links to registration are below.

We hope this series helps you pass the time as we all wait for the COVID-19 restrictions to end.

Virtual Looper Crawls
A popular part of an AGLCA Rendezvous is a Looper Crawl. Many of the Loopers with boats at the marina will open those boats for others to tour. It's a great way to see many Loop-capable boats in one place.

With the Spring Rendezvous canceled this year, we are bringing you a Virtual Looper Crawl. Join us along with some of our sponsors and Gold and Platinum Loopers for an in-depth look into popular types of Great Loop-capable vessels. Each week we’ll explore a new category and enjoy a virtual tour from a few veteran Loopers who will show you just what life aboard really looks like. Grab your favorite docktails recipe and a front row seat for our Virtual Looper Crawl.

June 18 ~ Motor Yachts & Express Cruisers (Click here for the recording)
June 25 ~ Trawlers (Click here for the recording)
July 2 ~ *** Postponed until July 16th ~ Tugs & Down East Boats
July 9 ~ Sailboats & Power Catamarans

You can choose to attend one or more of the virtual crawls.
