Ocean Cruising Club Mentoring Refreshed

by Phil Heaton 29 Aug 08:18 UTC

Connecting Members with other Members who have specialised experience and can help plan adventurous voyages is a primary benefit of OCC Membership.

The Ocean Cruising Club comprises Members who have sailed the traditional ocean routes and passages, explored idyllic cruising grounds and adventured to the remotest corners of our planet. Members range from permanent liveaboards to seasonal sailors. Their experience, expertise, knowledge and competence are ready to be shared with people who wish to venture further afield.

The Club offers a unique facility to support cruisers who would like to take a next step in cruising. Whether you are an individual, a couple, or a family for whom the next step is daunting and you are unsure about a major change, there are OCC Members who have "been there and done it", and can provide the answers to how you too can go there and do it - answers that may not be in the cruising guides or on cruising websites.
