About the Cruising Information Community Site
This CIC site is now the site for OCC Cruising Information.
Click on this link to go to the OCC sponsored Cruising Information Community (CIC) , . Visitors to the CIC site should click on 'Visitor' on the log in page, accept terms and conditions and click on browse. Visitors may read the information on the site but only members of Clubs signed up for the Cruising information Community may contribute to it.
OCC members and other CIC members: if you have a username and password, click on the CIC Club Members tab below, enter your details, accept the Terms and Conditions, and log in.
You will be taken to an alphabetical list of cruising areas.
When you enter the CIC site you will see three blue Tabs, labeled Cruising Areas, People and Articles and a blank white ‘Search’ box in which you may enter, for example the name of a place, or a country.
Alternatively, click the Cruising Areas or Articles tabs. If you are a member of the Ocean Cruising Club, you will also see a People Tab giving contact details and experience of other members.
Cruising Areas are fundamental to the storage and retrieval of information within the CIC site. They are named after countries, parts of a country, off-lying islands, oceans and seas.
We hold information on the flag, the currency, the telephone code, entry regulations and certain other information of use to the cruising sailor such as Ports of Entry and Places to leave a yacht for an extended time The Map on each page will show stars corresponding to the Locations held on the site for that area. You may zoom in on the map to see greater detail but be aware that many of the locations are approximate.
Within a Cruising Area the website holds Locations, Reports, links to relevant Websites and links to relevant Articles which have appeared in the OCC journal, Flying Fish.
OCC Members will also be able to see Port Officers, Members who either live in the Cruising area, or have experience of the Cruising Area or intend cruising there and, finally, any Dockage which is being offered.
