Get a jump on education for 2014. We will be starting the ABC class in March. See the Education Page for details.
ABC Class Beginning March 4th 2014
Welcome aboard! We are the Chattanooga chapter of the United States Power Squadrons®, the largest boating organization in the US. We are a volunteer organization to promote skillful as well as safe boating fun through public and member education. We also participate in boating civic activities.
The squadron is a unit of District 17 of the United States Power Squadrons, "America's Boating Club®", whose offices are located in Raleigh, NC.
The Squadron draws its membership from residents of Southeastern Tennessee and Northwestern Georgia, We operate on the Tennessee River and its many tributaries, including Nickajack Lake and Chickamauga Lake.
Classes: We offer the American Boating Course as an introduction to boating for new boaters. We can also help you get your TWRA boating license, a requirement for those born after January 1, 1989.
The introductory class may be all you need for now, but for many it stimulates a desire to learn more. If that is the case, your next step is to become a member and take Advanced Classes.
Activities: People join for the classes, then discover they have become part of a boating family of like minded people who meet for relaxed social gatherings.
You also have an opportunity for public service through the education program, cooperative charting or vessel safety checks. You can also help at large boating events.
Membership: For more information about membership contact our membership chairman David Varner firstname.lastname@example.org
