SailBoat1013Texas 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!

2018 Friemel HP

I can’t believe how fast 2017 went by. We finished out the year with another awesome Commodore’s Ball at Lakewood Yacht Club. The banquet room was filled with happy TMCA members enjoying friends, great food, music and dancing. TMCA boats proudly flew their TMCA burgees both in the inner harbor and surrounding docks. The special recognition awards presented were well deserved by all. I would like to thank all of those who volunteered their time and energy to help make this such a memorable event!

So now we begin another busy year. I am honored to be your Commodore this year and your 2018 board is really excited and eager to help continue the fun. Our trustees this year will be Marion Herndon, Gloria Rooney, Wayne Christopher and Jerry Simoneaux. They are very knowledgeable and experienced in all things TMCA and will help guide us through another successful year. We will continue to look for ways to make your experience with TMCA as enjoyable as possible while carrying on the traditions that have kept us growing and successful all these years.

We begin the new year with a cruise to Moody Gardens to get things going, and yes, we do cruises in the winter!  Hopefully you will consider joining us in an event or cruise this year and learn what makes TMCA such a great boating club. On that subject, please plan to attend our Planning Meeting at the Elks Lodge, Saturday morning January 13. This meeting is a great opportunity for you to share your ideas and plan the calendar for the many cruises and activities we will do this year. I’m always amazed at the new and creative ideas members come up with to keep the fun meter pegged!  For those of you who are a little shy in getting started, just let someone know you want to get more involved. There will be many friendly folks to help you co-host an event or just be part of a group preparing for the next fun activity. 

 Also, you are invited to attend the Member Orientation Meeting Saturday Jan. 20 to meet the new Officers and learn what these volunteers do to keep TMCA successful and running smoothly as possible.

I would like to remind you to continue to visit this website for information on all the fun activities we will schedule for 2018.  Your feedback and ideas are always welcome and will help us make TMCA better for all. Just email me or any Officer with your comments. As you probably noticed, I mentioned the word FUN a lot and that’s what TMCA is all about!

Special reminder: It’s time to renew those memberships and update all your boat and contact information.

Here’s wishing everyone a safe and happy year ahead.

Throw those lines off, get out on the water and create memories that will last a lifetime!
