The Berkshire Sail and Power Squadron is a part of the United States Power Squadrons (USPS®), the largest and most respected educational / fraternal boating organization on earth. There are squadrons in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. USPS® is a non profit, educational organization dedicated to making boating safer and more enjoyable by teaching classes in seamanship, navigation and related subjects. Our members are boating families who contribute to their communities by promoting safe boating through education, performing boat safety checks, and other community involvement.
