The Riverview Hotel, and Jerry and Gaila Brandon were voted the 2012 recipients of the Bateman Cruising Station of the Year by the Seven Seas Cruising Association members. The award was presented to the Brandon's at the December 8, 2012 Melbourne, Florida SSCA gam. With nearly 10,000 members from across the globe, the SSCA is the largest organization of voyaging cruisers in the world. SSCA is probably best known for its monthly Commodores' Bulletin, a 48 page monthly publication packed with information, advice and inspiration from members who are actually out there in the cruising world. Members get the most up-to-date information on anchorages, customs and immigration, costs and "what to do and where to go." The bulletin is all about cruisers sharing information with fellow cruisers. The bulletin is just one of many benefits of being a member of SSCA.
