Adventurous Use of the Sea tells the fascinating stories of CCA members who have set their sights high and achieved remarkable dreams. The chapters span the breadth of interests and abilities of scores of CCA members over the 100 years of the club’s existence. This book will be a companion to the Cruising Club history to be published in 2023

The Cruising Club is most grateful to Mystic Seaport Museum for their expert research assistance and for the generous use of images from their Rosenfeld and other collections.


What a wonderful tribute to the 100-year legacy of the Cruising Club of America! Tim Murphy and Sheila McCurdy have delivered a powerful and comprehensive account of that legacy with a truly engaging mix of images and prose. An absolute must-read for all who celebrate and preserve the contributions of the oceangoing sailors who created – and continue to create – this rich component of our shared maritime heritage.
