Of all the traditions of SSCA, the oldest and most cherished is the Commodore's Bulletin. Each month members share their firsthand cruising experiences and knowledge while providing advice and inspiration through their letters and contributions. From hand-copied, shared letters in the 1950s to a distinctive 48-page information-packed monthly, the Bulletin has always been the SSCA's most well-known benefit.
"The camaraderie of SSCA members around the world is remarkable. We have used the Bulletin extensively while planning and traveling to 114 countries and always look forward to reading it each month."
Liza and Andy Copeland, s/v Bagheera
Available as a traditional paper, mailed-to-your-door edition or digitally online in pdf format, this monthly publication provides pertinent information about the cruising life ... written by cruisers for cruisers. It's also available in a Microsoft Word (.doc) version without photos for the bandwidth impaired. Periodically, an indexed, searchable CD is available for easy access to articles by area, topic or contributor. Use this key benefit for passage planning, keeping track of actively cruising friends or browsing page by page, dreaming of what's out there and where you'll go.

It’s been said that the Commodores’ Bulletin has probably launched more voyages and kept more cruising dreams alive than any other publication. Just one more reason to join SSCA today!
