The Berkshire Sail and Power Squadron is a part of the America's Boating Club® which is also known as the United States Power Squadron®,
the largest and most respected educational / fraternal boating organization on earth. There are America's Boating Clubs in all 50 states,
Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 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, performing boat safety checks, and other community involvement.
Berkshire Sail and Power Squadron, the only Massachusetts Squadron in District 2,
is located in the western part of the state. Berkshire's members boat from Maine to
Florida as well as on local lakes, the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers, Lake Champlain,
Lake George and Long Island Sound.
The Squadron offers the Basic Boating Course (ABC 3rd) twice a year (Fall and Spring).

|To our USPS® members and friends: We regret we been forced to no longer hot link our email addresses. We apologize for the extra work needed to send email but we want to protect our addresses as best we can.
We're now using a funny form for email addresses on our website due to the amount of junk mail being generated by collecting email addresses and then selling the addresses to spammers and scam artists.
Then these addresses start receiving tons of unwelcome emails. So we've made our email addresses less recognizable to the collecting programs by listing the addresses with the at ( @ ) sign and the dot (.) spelled out in this way:
