What is C&OC Intl. Founding Membership?

We’ve been busy building our Membership Hub and Members Portal. The hub has been built to contain recourses for members on all aspects of Preparation and Cruising. Being new we’re still adding legacy recourses and new resources, articles and video as they’re completed.

The Membership Portal is now a professional, fully automated process plus our payment portal is now handled by World Leading Payment Processor’s, Stripe so you can pay with confidence.

Why Founding Member? For a limited time we’ll be offering a reduced subscription for membership which will remain at the same cost for the lifetime of your membership. So for as long as you remain a paid up member you’ll always be on the Founding Member US$65 membership. But, we need your help! With a new Hub and Membership Portal, there are bound to be some glitches, we’d like you to report these to us so we can perfect the user experience over time. Help us take C&OC into the future as a Founding Member!

On sign up, you receive access to all the resources and benefits of Membership.
