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

As we enter December, the board is busy preparing year-end summaries and working with the incoming board for a smooth transition. Looking over the reports, I am very happy with where we are and how far we’ve come as a group.  Our membership is at a record high, our finances are in excellent shape, and we’ve had more cruises, socials, and educational events than ever before.

To better serve our growing numbers, we made a few changes to the way we operate while maintaining important traditions and promoting the unfettered fun this group has always offered.  Our website allows you to register for cruises and some events where a headcount is helpful, and pay slip fees or other expenses in advance.  Online registration also helps our cruises leaders who now only need to look to one place to find your registration and information that they need to make slip assignments or other plans.  Having only one place for registrations also means no one inadvertently gets overlooked.  If you haven’t updated your TMCA profile online, please take time this holiday season to log in to our website (www.TexasMariners.com) to review your profile and correct any missing or old information.

We’ve updated the way we communicate, too.  Members receive weekly notifications of all our cruises, events, and other social gatherings, along with this monthly article written by your board members.  Our members can interact online to share stories, photos, and videos in our Facebook Group (www.facebook.com/groups/TMCAgroup/) or our Yahoo Groups email listserv (https://groups.yahoo.com/tmcamariners).  If you are unable to attend our monthly meetings, you can view them live in our Facebook Group.  The video is also saved there so you can view it later if you missed something.

Texas Mariners Cruising Association is one of the largest and most successful social boating groups along the Gulf Coast, and I am very proud to be a member as I hope you are.  Our growth and success are directly attributable to your enthusiasm, participation, and just plain fun attitude!  Thank you for being a member and helping to make TMCA such a joy to belong to.

During the upcoming holidays, Christopher and I would like to wish you joy, peace, good health, and that you be surrounded by the love of your family and friends.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays,

Signature 2
