Beaverton Sail & Power Squadron was chartered in 1975 in Oregon’s District 32 as an offshoot of the Portland Power Squadron and currently has approximately 75 members. Member education is stressed. Each year a variety of courses are offered to members ranging from Seamanship to Celestial Navigation as well as elective courses such as Engine Maintenance, Sail, Marine Electronics, Cruise Planning, and Weather.

The Beaverton Sail & Power Squadron’s newsletter, The Foghorn, is available in Adobe PDF format. You can download the free reader software from Adobe’s web site.

The Beaverton Sail & Power Squadron offers the Basic Boating Course to the public at least twice annually. In addition, members of the squadron participate in Cooperative Charting activities reporting chart corrections and additions to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. These changes assist in keeping charts up-to-date for other mariners. Other members can provide a Vessel Safety Check, which is santioned by the United States Coast Guard, so that you can know that your boat complies with the recommended safety standards for recreational boats.

Opportunities abound for members to enjoy the friendship, camaraderie, and sharing of boating experiences with fellow members. Regular membership meetings, held on the third Wednesday of each month, offer programs that are interesting and instructional. Activities and cruises are planned for one each month. Classes need member volunteers to share their boating expertise as teachers or class proctors. Social affairs are a regular part of the calender with both on-water and off-water events. Involvement in this nation-wide premier boating organization of volunteers also offers extended opportunities to participate at District and National levels.
