Sandusky Power Squadron stresses safe boating operations, regulations, learning plotting, compass courses, bearings, dead reckoning, distance-speed-time calculations and marlinespike.

Trained members of the Sandusky Power Squadron at no cost provide the instruction to students.  There is a nominal fee for the student manual.  Some type of protractor and dividers may be required.
