Captains invited to Great Lakes seminar

ADVERTISEMENT

The Great Lakes in North America cover 94,250 square miles and have 10,900 miles of shoreline. Yet in many ways are an undiscovered cruising ground for yacht owners.

This year, American Yacht Agents and Burger Boat Company are hosting a seminar during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show focusing on Cruising the Great Lakes. Among the speakers will be Capt. Jeff Werner, who has cruised the area extensively and has written about it for Marina Life magazine. Also on hand will be Debora Radtke, owner of American Yacht Agents, and Jim Ruffolo and Ron Cleveringa of Burger.

Speakers will discuss destinations such as the 1,000 islands of New York, cities such as Chicago and Detroit, and the wilds of Lake Superior. They also will offer advice on regulations that may affect a summer cruise.

The seminar will be held Thursday, Nov. 3, at 4 p.m. in the U.S. Superyacht Association America’s Pavilion at FLIBS. For more information, contact Radtke at 954-684-9456.
