Combining classroom lectures with group discussions and one-on-one interaction with speakers and fellow students, World Cruising Club's seminars share knowledge from those who have 'been there and done it'.

Topics range from weather to offshore communications, rigging to safety equipment, power generation to medical kits and many more essential themes to help you prepare for a happy life afloat.
