British Cruising Association

British Cruising Association

This renowned maritime association collects and shares very relevant but above all high quality information, publishing numerous cruising guides and navigational aids, and offering training courses on various topics. All members, supported by a small team of dedicated staff, share their experience, knowledge and enjoyment to make the most of cruising.

The Cruising Association has a long history over 100 years and counts numerous renowned personalities among its ranks, such as Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, Griff Rhys Jones, Keith Musto and Jeanne Socrates.

Up-to-date information sharing is one of the BCA’s most valuable services, with over 6000 members sharing their cruising experiences, tips, and advice from around the world.

An online forum is available on their website, which is a great way for members to share information. All posts and replies are made using real names, not pseudonyms, and are visible only to members.

The forums are divided into categories, including general cruising topics, weather and technical issues, as well as geographical areas such as Vizcaya, Baltic and Mediterranean. Topics range from the nearest launderette to the best restaurant.
