as shared by Texas Mariners Cruising Association
TMCA, Texas Mariners Cruising Association, is a nonprofit social club. Our members have power boats, sail boats, or are “in between” boats. We offer many activates monthly designed to help you get to know fellow boaters, improve your boating skills and encourage more time spent on the water. Below is a sample of our activities.
MONTHLY MEETINGS GENERAL meetings feature speakers and programs aimed at enhancing seamanship, boat handling skills and enjoyment of local waters. They are held at the Elks Lodge in Seabrook.
SCHEDULED CRUISES The calendar is filled with organized cruises and include a Cruise Leader who is experienced with the destination and knows how to avoid trouble. You simply participate and have fun! Our June cruises include: Cruise to O’Neal’s Pub & Sports bar at Bayland Marina From Saturday, June 23, 2018To Sunday, June 24, 2018 (with viewing of some of the Texas Outlaw Challenge “mariners”) and the Top Hat Cruise to Pelican Rest From Friday, June 29, 2018 To Sunday, July 01, 2018
EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS We present occasional courses to help members feel confident and comfortable with their own boating skills. Navigation, piloting, first aid, CPR and the use of the Loran or GPS are just a few examples. These are presented each month in the monthly meetings as well as in special member’s only seminars.
SOCIAL ACTIVITIES From monthly Dock Parties to Wine & Cheese Cruises, our social calendar alone makes the club worth joining! Check out some of our recent functions at our Photo Gallery.
