Anchoring and Navigation Rights Committee
The Anchoring and Navigation Rights Committee (ANRC) was established to help the membership stay abreast of issues that directly affect cruising worldwide. The ANRC has established goals of :
- developing sound policies to offer agencies that regulate anchorages, mooring fields, and shore-side facilities
- fostering ties with other organizations involved in similar issues; and
- monitoring legislative initiatives than may impact cruisers
The SSCA Board of Directors recognizes that restrictions on movement, anchoring, and shore access are a serious threat to our cruising lifestyle. By establishing the ANRC, we will be able to more effectively use the influence of our members to help preserve it. We must find constructive ways to help solve the problems that confront both us and the communities we visit, demonstrating that Clean Wake cruisers are an asset, not a threat.
The ANCR is currently monitoring legislatures in 30 states but needs people with experience in grassroots organizing, public policy, publicity, writing short articles and press releases, website maintenance, basic web research, drafting sample letters for members, blogging, attending governmental and regulatory meetings, and presenting statements at public hearings. If you would like to be involved, please send your contact information and areas of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
