Ocean Cruising Club
"The Worldwide Community for Adventure Sailing Since 1954"
Ocean Cruising Club members represent the distilled essence of the blue water sailing community - a potent combination of accomplishment, experience, idealism, eccentricity, generosity and humility.
The sole qualification for Full Membership, entails stepping aboard a boat and making a continuous ocean passage of at least 1000 nautical miles, measured by the shortest practical Great Circle route between two ports, in a vessel not more than 70 feet overall length. Associate Members join aspiring to do the same and being inspired by those who already have.
