Thumbs up SSCA and SSU Updates

Hi everyone,

I am proud to highlight SSCA on Sailnet. SSCA is a non-profit organization completely committed to helping cruisers, cruisers with children, aspiring cruisers, and even those who just enjoy sailing. It is a very close organization with a wealth of information. They provide webinars on various topics, GAMs (Gather and Meets), make a presence at various boating shows, and try to make a real impact on the issues which directly affect all boaters - even those who are not cruisers.

Dave Skolnick (S/V Auspicious) is a key member of this organization and I want to use this thread as a way for him, or others in SSCA, to help get the word out on events or SSU.

Thank you Dave for all the work you have put into this organization and making boating, cruising, and sailing better.

Brian

Re: SSCA and SSU Updates

Hello SailNet!

Thanks to the moderators for giving SSCA this thread.

The Seven Seas Cruising Association is a not-for-profit organization for cruisers by cruisers. We have a lot of benefits we offer to members. What I want to emphasize now is one of our offerings to everyone, everywhere.

We have a webinar program called Seven Seas U through which we offer seminars about a range of subjects - cruising destinations, off-the-grid power, communications (SSB, VHF, sat-phone, and WiFi), provisioning, commissioning, marine insurance, watermakers, and more. Presenters include Beth Leonard, Nigel Calder, Jimmy Cornell, Bob Williams, Pam Wall, Lee Chesneau, Kathy Parsons, Chris Parker, Frank Bohlen, and the inimitable Claiborne Young. Most webinars have a fee (small discount to SSCA members) that goes to offset the costs of delivering the material and a bit of beer money to the presenter.

SSU "took the winter off" and we're dusting off a bit now. I'll have a schedule up by the weekend.

We believe there is a lot to be gained from the information we share.

We expect to add CruisingDad this summer to talk about cruising with kids!

Once again, thanks to SailNet for offering the time and space to share what we have to offer.

sail fast and eat well, dave

Not sure what you mean. I'm a volunteer SSCA cruising station host and I volunteer to help with the bulletin. SSCA relies on volunteers around the globe.

Joe, are you snarkily hinting that someone at non-profits actually makes money? Gee, whoda thunk?

Re: SSCA and SSU Updates

It's taken longer to really get things moving again, but we have a new administrator (again, a volunteer) who is really gung ho. See Seven Seas U .

Next Wednesday 14 January I'll be presenting the first in my own extensive series of communications webinars, Communications Alternatives for Cruisers. This is an overview session and is free to SSCA members, $10 for non-members.

Duration: 1.5 Hours
Date: Wednesday, January 14 at 8:00 pm U.S. EST
Instructor: Dave Skolnick, KO4MI, S/V Auspicious
Course Fee: Free - SSCA Members / $10 - Non Members

Why is learning about communications alternatives important for cruisers?

It will save you money otherwise wasted on technology you may never use
It will ensure you stay connected with loved ones left behind
It will increase your enjoyment of cruising by connecting you with fellow cruisers
It will prevent frustration by setting your expectations for budget and quality of communications

In this course you will learn:

The various communications options available to modern cruisers
The cost of the communications options
What can be expected from each technology
How to correlate your needs and expectations with the communications options available
How to determine which additional communications courses you should take from Seven Seas U

Whether you intend to call home, send and receive e-mail, or simply ensure you have the latest weather information, with Dave's expertise you can sail away confident you have the best communications solution for you.

This live webinar will last approximately one and a half hours and will include time for a question and answer session. Please note this session covers a lot of material and sometimes runs long. Dave has committed to staying online until the last question is answered. You will need Internet access to participate in this live session. If you do not have Internet access at the time of the live session, you can sign-up for the event and you will receive a link to watch the recorded webinar at your convenience. You will also receive links to the Anytime Learning version of the course when it is available.

Re: SSCA and SSU Updates

My Webinar last week was a pretty big success. We had 66 people sign up, and more have registered for the recording since then. I saw a number of familiar SailNet names. Thanks.
