Seven Season Cruising Association 2023
Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA.ORG) provides valuable support and fellowship to current, future and former cruisers. Our members voyage by boat or aspire to do so; respect and value the environment, the cultures we visit, and each other. We are better together and support each other in living the dream. We enable and sustain those pursuing the cruising lifestyle through education, fellowship, and fun. Facilitate camaraderie among you and fellow cruisers.
SSCA provides indispensable information about cruising life and current events, and deliver it to its members electronically and in-person. SSCA helps you achieve the dream by providing global, on-the-water cruising support. Membership gets you members-only exclusive access to a sea of knowledge provided by members at home and aboard on our website and via email.
Gams (n.): social visit or friendly interchange, especially between sailors or seafarers.
Some are small and informal, while some include cruising seminars and vendors. Gain vital knowledge and camaraderie at one of our gams around the world!
Monthly newsletters are always available online and Bulletins keep you updated on fellow members and the activities of the Board and Home Base.
