After thousands of miles and places visited, many of our members take a moment to share what they have learned. We offer the articles and courses below for you.
CCA Members are committed to advancing our sport, and we participate in a wide range of programs designed to foster safer, and more adventurous, sailing. These include courses offered by CCA and others, a range of online and printed publications, seminars, and a friendly hand or a smile at the docks.
We hope the materials referenced here are of use to you and will help you "Create a Culture of Safety" aboard.
