Jimmy Cornell will be the Keynote Speaker at the Melbourne, Florida SSCA Gam December 5-7, 2008.

If you're anywhere near Florida USA at the beginning of December, dust off your dancing boat shoes and plan to party at this year's Seven Seas Cruising Association’s annual Melbourne, Florida Gam with three full days of seminars, marine vendor exhibitions and camaraderie with cruising friends old and new.

The world's most famous cruising guru, founder of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, and of Noonsite.com, and author of 13 highly respected cruising books, Jimmy Cornell, will kick off the seminar program on Friday with 'Planning Your Dream Cruise'. Then on Saturday you'll hear him reflect upon his passion for the sea during three circumnavigations.

There’s lots more great seminars; see the complete schedule online at www.ssca.org.

The Don Soledad Trio will serenade us with flamenco guitar at the Friday evening Camaraderie Cocktail Party. On Saturday night, don your Hawaiian shirts and coconut bras and begin the evening with sundowners, followed by a sumptuous Island Buffet Party with music by the Pan Sharks Steel Band (limited seating so sign up early). The annual SSCA Awards will be presented at the party. Sunday morning visit the popular flea market, hands-on demos and roundtables with the experts, followed by the Annual Meeting after lunch. All activities will take place at Eau Gallie Civic Center in Melbourne, just up the street from the ICW anchorage for those arriving by boat; hotel and driving info along with the complete seminar schedule and online registration are posted on the website at www.ssca.org.

Everyone welcome!

Seven Seas Cruising Association, Inc. is the oldest and largest non-profit organization of voyaging cruisers in the world. The goals of the original founders are still the goals of SSCA today: sharing cruising information, camaraderie, and leaving a clean wake. For more information, go to www.ssca.org
