Groups Near You
Wherever you live and cruise, check below to find a CA group near you. These are our ‘Sections’. Cruising Sections cover sea areas while local Sections are based around the UK. There’s also an Antipodean Section for members Down Under.
Members usually join at least two Sections, one near home and another where they cruise. However you can join as many, or as few, as you like. Joining a Section is free and lets you become involved in those events and discussions most relevant to you.
Cruising Sections have email nets; dedicated forums for members to exchange information. As a member you can access any forum at any time – whether you’re a Section member or not. You can choose to set up automatic forwarding of posts from any forum while a ‘cruising mode’ helps you control receipt of emails when airtime might be expensive or bandwidths constricted.
