SOLO SAILING: The Great Lakes Singlehanded Society
http://webhost.sailnet.com/glss/
The Great Lakes Singlehanded Society is an organization established for 
the perpetuation of the sport of solo sailing. Its purpose is twofold: 
the first being to encourage the development of suitable techniques, 
equipment and gear for shorthanded passage under sail; the second is the 
recognition of accomplishments of singlehanded sailors in the Great 
Lakes region.
