America's Boating Club

United States Power Squadrons

Standard Squadron/District Site

Welcome.  This is the place where recreational boaters come to learn more about boating, engage with fellow boaters, and have fun with our boating community.

Our squadron is part of the United States Power Squadrons, a non-profit boating organization dedicated to helping people enjoy boating activities safely. Our membership includes all types of boaters and boating families (power, sail, and paddlers), novices and experienced boaters alike. You dont need a boat to join; just have a keen interest in boating-related activities and an eagerness to meet others who do, too.

We have many enjoyable on-the-water and land-based activities, including boating activities, social events, learning opportunities, and other get-togethers. Many boating activities are held on nearby waters, but we also organize longer cruises and join boating activities hosted by other squadrons. Check out our Squadron Newsletter and Calendar of Upcoming Events to see what is currently going on.

We provide many quality and affordable classroom courses and seminars led by skilled and experienced volunteer instructors. We cover a full range of topics from basic boating to advanced education in navigation, boat handling and operation, and boat systems and maintenance. Many of our classes include supplemental on-the-water skill demonstration and supervised practice to help our students gain more confidence in their knowledge and ability to apply it. Our classes are open to members and non-members alike, and members enjoy preferred pricing. Visit our Courses and Seminars pages to find out more about our programs.

We enjoy being part of our local community and give back through our service activities. We are active community volunteers and help to make the water a better place for everyone to enjoy. If you would like to give back, consider participating as an instructor, boat examiner, or community service volunteer. More information about our service activities can be found on the Civic Service page.

Thanks for visiting us. We hope to see you soon!
