Crusing Club of America at San Francisco Yacht Club, 11:30 am-2:00 pm
Posted on Aug 21st, 2014
CCA is an international organization of over 1,200 sailors who have voyaged the oceans for adventure and recreation. Members have broad sailing experience, exemplified by superior seamanship and demonstrated through significant command. Equally important to the mission of the club are the members’ geniality of spirit and willingness to share knowledge and friendship through cruises, social events, publications, and posts on this website.
The CCA and its members contribute to the sport of sailing and history of yachting in many ways. The club makes awards for exceptional passage making, seamanship and literary works. The club organizes and runs the biennial Newport Bermuda Race, and conducts seminars on safety at sea for hundreds of sailors. The Bonnell Cove Foundation makes grants to not-for-profit organizations for projects in safety at sea and environmental protection.
