About the SSCA

The Seven Seas Cruising Association is the oldest and largest worldwide organization that supports the liveaboard cruising lifestyle. It was founded in 1952 by six liveaboard couples in California and over the years has grown to include membership from cruisers around the world. The SSCA main focus is to share cruising information, foster camaraderie, and leave a clean wake.

Upcoming Gam Conferences

gam (noun)—“A social meeting of two (or more) Whaleships, generally on a cruising-ground; when, after exchanging hails, they exchange visits by boats’ crews…”  (Herman Melville, Moby Dick)

This year the SSCA is holding several gam events. These conferences include seminar speakers, round tables, an awards banquet, and a flea market. They provide a wonderful opportunity for cruisers to meet new friends and learn about what is trending in the sailing community.
