What is United States Power Squadrons?

Organized in 1914, 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. We enjoy participating with our fellow members on the water and in the classroom. USPS has some 45,000 members organized into 450 squadrons across the country and in some US territories. USPS is the world's largest non-profit boating organization and has been honored by three US presidents for its civic contributions.

It is our goal to help members improve their boating skills, contribute to their community, and increase their fun on and off of the water. We have many member benefits that will help you to enjoy boating the way we do. Our National Magazine, the Ensign, is full of useful news, tips, and tools. Our Port Captains will guide you into their harbors with all the knowledge of the area. And with an organization the size of ours we are able to offer our members many benefits from many boating partners and friends.
