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

Our members were a big hit at the Southwest International Boat Show this past March, and we are looking forward to participating again September 23-25 at South Shore Harbor Marina.  Several of our members will be speakers, and we will again host the big after-show raffle.  We need fun-loving volunteers to staff our booth.  Work for two hours, receive free entry for the day, along with the everlasting appreciation of a grateful commodore.  Please contact me at jerry@simoneaux.com to help out.

Go Anyway! is the name of a terrific book I read about a local couple who were planning their round-the-world sailing cruise when the author’s husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s.  Their doctor advised them to cancel their plans.  But, as they were leaving the hospital, a young physician completing her residency there whispered, “Go Anyway!”  They did and the 10-year voyage was wonderful for them. 

If you haven’t been to a dock party, participated in a cruise, or joined us for any of our many fun events because you haven’t had the time or didn’t feel up to it, I say Go Anyway!  You’ll be glad you did.  Check out our calendar and pick an event!  We’d love to see you there!

Until next time, throw off those bowlines…catch the trade winds…. Explore! Dream! Discover!
