We've belonged to the SSCA (Seven Seas Cruising Association) since we began cruising in 2000.
We've never really been "club- joining" types, but SSCA seemed to be a great organization of
people that shared our spirit for adventure and the cruising-liveaboard lifestyle. We've become
more active over the years, first by submitting articles for the monthly
Commodore's Bulletin, then
Marcie became a Coordinator for Worldwide Cruising Stations and was elected in 2007 to the
SSCA Board of Directors. After serving 3 years on the Board, she & David became SSCA
Roving Ambassadors and still actively recruit new members, provide informational seminars and
organize SSCA get togethers wherever they are.

What we like most about SSCA:
  • Like-minded, like-spirited people who like to cruise (sail or power)
  • Excellent networking opportunities to find information on everything from anchorages in odd
    destinations to gear purchases
  • Sharing of information...SSCA members have been most everywhere
  • Camaraderie and help when you need it
