Who are we ?
We are your friends and neighbors of Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, Florida and surrounding areas, who belong to this organization that is dedicated to teaching the proper and safe way to operate and enjoy your sail or power boat. For information about boating education offerings to the public see Learn More.
We are a unit of the United States Power Squadrons®, a non-profit organization which covers all 50 states, with a mission to promote high standards of navigation and seamanship.
SAFE BOATING does not just happen. If you are on the waterways, it is important to have basic boating knowledge, like "rules of the road". These rules will define who is expected to do what in a given situation during normal operation of the boat, or in a crisis situation. You can learn all this, and more, by taking the classes offered by the Peace River Sail and Power Squadron.
Upon completion of the public course, consider joining the Power Squadron and continuing your boating education by taking many of the advanced classes available. Throughout the year, we teach advanced and elective courses for our members. A member can progress from basic boating knowledge to advanced navigation through the comprehensive courses offered. Members can also take courses in marine electronics, sail, engine maintenance, cruise planning, weather, and many other specialty interests.
