Welcome to America's Boating Club

Do you want to learn more about safe boating and have fun while doing it? That's one of the goals of Beaufort Sail & Power Squadron. We are America's Boating Club of Beaufort with activities for the whole family. We conduct cruises throughout the year to various locations on the water in our area. Every month we meet at a local restaurant for socializing and recognition of members. We would love to have you join us whether you have a boat or not.

A new South Carolina state law took effect August 18, 2023 requiring teens to take a boating course if they wish to go out on a boat on their own anywhere on state waterways. The new requirement covers individuals currently 16 years old and younger. The new law states any type of watercraft including jet skis or anything with a 10 horsepower engine or greater. The Beaufort Yacht & Sailing Club and Beaufort Sail & Power Squadron, now known as America's Boating Club of Beaufort, in conjunction with SCDNR will host a free four-hour Safety Boating Class on April 20, 2024. The course is free and all material will be furnished Click HERE for a detailed description of the course and registration materials Applicants are encouraged to register for either one of the classes as soon as possible as there are a limited number of seats for each class. Other states that have implemented versions of this program have seen a very significant decrease in boating accidents and injuries, particularly for younger boaters.
