Stephen Lash of Christie's Auction House on

As a member of the Captains' Circle, you'll join with peers who share your interest in the history and culture of fine vessels. Captains' Circle members enjoy special benefits and recognition opportunities.


Why Captains' Circle?

Just as a ship needs a captain, SSHSA needs members to provide crucial support that will help our ship navigate through our recapitalization effort to bring fiscal equilibrium to the Society. Through membership contributions, Captains' Circle members establish leadership in supporting SSHSA.
