The United States Power Squadrons (USPS) is dedicated to safe and enjoyable sail and power boating, and was founded in 1914. The Vermilion Sail and Power Squadron was established September 14, 1937. Most of our members live along Lake Erie, between Sandusky and Cleveland. We enjoy summer rendezvous, regular dinner meetings the rest of the year, teach boating classes, and conduct vessel safety checks.
