Superior Cruising Group Potluck

The Superior Cruising Group is an informal group of current or aspiring ocean cruisers from the Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN, area, most of whom have or had their boats on Lake Superior at some point. Some of the group are SSCA members, but everyone with an interest in ocean cruising is welcome to participate. The informal group meets monthly during the winter months for a Pot Luck meal followed by an informal program focused on some aspect of cruising.  Several in the group have crossed the Atlantic, done the Caribbean 1500, Salty Dawg or Thorny Path, cruised the Pacific coast, and taught sailing and cruising in the Caribbean and Lake Superior, while others have skippered and delivered multiple catamarans from France to the Caribbean and East Coast for new buyers. Numerous members have cruised or continue to cruise the Bahamas and Caribbean and beyond, and a number of others have plans of that nature in their sights within the next few years.


The group has been in existence for over a dozen years, bringing both current and seriously-aspiring ocean cruisers together to further their cruising knowledge as well as to network with others who have already been out there. Meetings are held on a Friday night each month at the Danish American Center, 3030 West River Pkwy in Minneapolis. The doors open at 6:00pm and the pot luck generally starts around 6:30pm. Upcoming meetings are scheduled for 12/13, 1/17, 2/21, 3/20, & 4/17, but please call ahead to either Judy Taylor (612-247-8763) or Bill Rohde (612-991-2775) to confirm that scheduling has not changed. There is no formal membership and no charge to participate except that we do “pass the hat” to cover room rental. Members participate in the group’s list serve to receive upcoming meeting information. The group welcomes new/aspiring ocean cruisers, so if you’re in or around the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, please think about joining in the camaraderie.
