Courses are available on essential topics such as marine weather, communications, safety at sea, navigation, boat systems and maintenance. And cruisers from across the globe bring you insights into the cruising lifestyle and exotic cruising destinations.

Seven Seas U is open to both SSCA members and non-members; however, SSCA members attend webinars for free or at a discounted rate.  All members in SSCA receive a FREE membership to Seven Seas University with free unlimited access to all of our free-for-member educational webinars.

Boaters' Rights Advocacy:  Protect Florida Anchorages!
Seven Seas Cruising Association monitors 30 states across the US and works with three other organizations - America’s Great Loop Cruisers’ Association; DeFever Cruisers; Marine Trawler Owners Association – to preserve our rights. This webinar is with Lobbyist Jerry Paul to discuss the FLORIDA regulatory issues which will surface during the legislative session starting in March 2021. Key is the possible lost of anchorage in West Palm Beach, Florida/replacement by mooring fields faced by our cruisers as they anchor and navigate our waterways. SSCA is focused on what will be needed in the future to support citizens' rights to transit and their access to and use of public waterways such as the Inter Coastal Waterway (ICW) and anchorages.

SSCA Equipment Series: Fishing
Seven Seas Cruising Association announces a new series of webinars under the banner of the Seven Seas University that focuses on equipment of interest to cruising sailors.  This first webinar interviews and presents “Adventureman Dan” who is a frequent contributor to the SSCA Facebook page with his posts about his spearfishing adventures around the world. Dan Byrne will describe the spearfishing equipment he uses, his sustainable fishing methods (he pretty much subsists on the fish he catches, feeding himself, his crew and cruising neighbors with any excess) and how to interact with pelagic species.

Dan recently became a member of Seven Seas Cruising Association and credits other members for their advice and encouragement for his lifestyle onboard.  Visit Adventureman Dan’s website at www.adventuremandan.life, listen to his podcasts and watch his videos. Enjoy the webinar.
