The Cruising Club of America is made up of accomplished offshore sailors who are dedicated to the sport of yachting, with special emphasis on long distance ocean cruising to remote and interesting areas.

Members who fly the CCA burgee do so with pride and a sense of achievement. Membership is not taken lightly and our burgee is recognized in all corners of the world. Membership in the The Cruising Club of America is by invitation, with new members being proposed by existing members who know them well. The invitation may be extended to sailors who have demonstrated offshore sailing experience in a command position.
