WelcomeTMCA

SailBoat1013Texas Mariners Crusing Association is a nonprofit social club in the Clear Lake area of Houston, TX.   Our members have power boats, sailboats, or are "in between" boats.   Our activities include cruises of all types:  one day, weekend, or extended cruises.  They can be geared for power, sail, or both.  We also have small boat excursions or dinghy regattas.  And certainly no boating organization would be complete without social activities!   

These range from dock parties, themed parties or parties in conjunction with our cruises. We also offer great educational opportunities where you can sharpen your boating skills.  If you have a boat ~ or are thinking about a boat, if you're a novice boater ~ or experienced boater, TMCA is for you!  Come join us!

COMMODORE'S MESSAGE

Simoneaux Pic

Dear TMCA Member,

2016 has been an outstanding year for TMCA and there is every indication that 2017 will be even better.  Our club has offered more cruises, parties, and educational events than ever before, and our membership is the strongest it has ever been with well over 700 members.  We are easily one of the largest and most active pleasure boating groups on the Gulf Coast.  I attribute our success to our members who are welcoming, fun-loving, and dedicated.

It has been as much a privilege as it was a pleasure to serve as your Commodore this year.  I cannot thank you enough for the seemingly endless hours and tireless work many of you have put in to making this club such a joy to belong to.  Whether you hosted a dock party, led a cruise, arranged a special event, taught a class, volunteered (or were voluntold) for an event, or attended one of our many events with your smiles and laughter, you are the reason I and so many others love this club!

On Friday, November 18, we will hold our Annual Meeting where you will choose who will take this club forward for us in 2017.  The general membership has nominated the following people, and I absolutely could not be happier.  These folks are among the most hard-working, dedicated, and super fun people I know.  The nominees are:

Commodore:               Charles Parette

Vice Commodore:       Larry Friemel

Rear Commodore:       Lori Friemel

Cruise Captain:           Ken Ekenseair

Secretary:                    Kathy Houser

Treasurer:                    Cookie Johnson

 

I look forward to seeing you there.  Until then, throw off those bowlines…catch the trade winds…. Explore! Dream! Discover!
