FCCA Ready for a Full Return to Cruising 

In June of 2021, the FCCA convened for a Return to Sail Summit with the goal of getting ready to cruise again once everything was in place. The summit was the association’s first live event in more than a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Porthole Cruise and Travel Magazine Founder and Editor-in-Chief Bill Panoff was in attendance.
