Texas Mariners Crusing Association is a nonprofit social club in the Clear Lake area of Houston, TX. Our members have power boats, sailboats, or are "in between" boats. Our activities include cruises of all types: one day, weekend, or extended cruises. They can be geared for power, sail, or both. We also have small boat excursions or dinghy regattas. And certainly no boating organization would be complete without social activities!
These range from dock parties, themed parties or parties in conjunction with our cruises. We also offer great educational opportunities where you can sharpen your boating skills. If you have a boat ~ or are thinking about a boat, if you're a novice boater ~ or experienced boater, TMCA is for you! Come join us!
Come cruise with TMCA! Check out all the details and join us. Registration is OPEN!
2017 has been a great year for TMCA and there is every indication that 2018 will be even better. Our club has offered more cruises, parties, and educational events than ever before, and our membership is strong and growing each month. We are easily one of the largest and most active pleasure boating groups on the Gulf Coast.
It has been a pleasure to serve as your Commodore this year. Thanks to our many, many volunteers, who hosted a dock parties, led cruises, arranged special events, taught a class, volunteered (or were voluntold) for an event, or attended one of our many events with your smiles, stories, and laughter, you are the reason I and so many others love this club!
On Friday, November 17, we will hold our Annual Meeting where you will choose who will take this club forward for us in 2018. The general membership has nominated the following people, and I could not be happier with the slate of candidates. The nominees are hard-working, dedicated, and fun. If you haven’t mailed in your ballot, please be sure to bring to the November meeting.
The nominees are:
Commodore: Larry Friemel
Vice Commodore: Jeff Kaspic
Rear Commodore: Dee Latiolais
Cruise Captain: Bryan Austin
Secretary: Dawn Gibler
Treasurer: Cookie Johnson
Plans are firming up for our annual Commodore’s Ball. I hope you will plan to join Linda and me at the 2017 Commodore's Ball, to be held Saturday night, Dec. 16th, at Lakewood Yacht Club. Invitations will be mailed soon. We give thanks to our board members and committee chairs, and we look forward to awarding several special "recognition awards," as is our custom. It means so much more when you
are there to help say "thanks" to our hard-working members. There will be plenty of time to dine, party and dance.
Keep an eye on the calendar, as there are still plenty of cruises, dock parties, and events coming up.
I think TMCA is one of the most welcoming and accepting organization around. Enjoyment of boating is the only thing that matters here in TMCA, and anyone who offers to catch my lines, or pull me off a sandbar is a friend of mine.
Best wishes for a great month, a joyful Thanksgiving and lots of time on the water with family and friends!
