The Cruising Club of America and the Irish Cruising Club have a long standing and close relationship founded on their shared love of challenging the elements, cruising the world’s oceans and sharing seafaring experiences. A foundation of both clubs is the mutual respect, friendship and camaraderie of their shipmates.
