Some class sizes have been reduced, so sign up soon! Please contact us if you have questions about classes. Safety precautions will apply in all classes, including masks. We continue to sanitize common areas daily. An outdoor lunch area is available for our students. 

  • We are experiencing high demand. Please note that SHIPPING TIMES HAVE INCREASED for some CLC kits. Most supplies and accessories are shipped very quickly. Call or email us for current availability. 
  • Some of our suppliers continue to see supply-chain delays. Trailers, boat covers, and small boat sails (all of which are made in the USA) are pushing 4-6 weeks. Longer for trailers, for which there is a worldwide backlog.    
  • We are experiencing some shipping delays due to unusually high demand for online orders. Our shipping partners are working with us to expedite all the shipments as fast as they can.
  • CLC's in-stock inventory is healthy. Respirators are back in stock, too! 
  • We're a small business. Thank you for your patience, and for your patronage! Our staff and their families depend on it.
