History  of the Meriden Power Squadron

More than 50 years ago, five members from the Harbor Brook Yacht Club decided to start the Meriden Power Squadron. On February 2, 1954 the charter was signed with a grand total of 13 members.

Today we have over 90 members from Meriden, Southington, Cheshire, Wallingford, Bristol and many other towns.
Dedicated to the advancement of Boating education, safety, and the camaraderie of recreational boating, our members meet every month (except July and August) for general and/or executive meetings in Meriden to plan and discuss upcoming events, educational classes and enjoy various programs that are held.
Our events are usually held in the Connecticut River at places like Pattaconk Yacht Club and Hamburg Cove, and cruises on Long Island Sound that can be to Block Island, Montauk, Greenport and other places as well.


Where are we?

The Meriden Power Squadron serves members from all over Connecticut but most boats are located in the area between New Haven and up the Connecticut River to Chester. 

Educational classes are usually held in Meriden or Southington.
