Welcome to the Neighborhood

When you join United States Power Squadrons, you’re joining a community that was built by boaters, for boaters. You’re building a lifetime of memories together on the water, on shore and by giving back to your community. Whether you’re passionate about cruising, racing, making new friends, volunteering in your community or learning from experienced boaters, your local squadron has the resources you need to engage your passions and, perhaps, instill some new ones.

On the Water

Who doesn’t have a smile on their face whenever they’re on a boat? You can’t help yourself. Boating is the definition of getting away from it all. And getting away from it all is always more fun as a member of United States Power Squadrons. Beyond being a safe and confident boater, you’ll also enjoy cruises, sail races, navigation contests, fishing derbies, and unlimited fun with squadron friends.

On Shore

Camaraderie doesn’t stop at the dock. That’s what makes us different. Our focus is providing unsurpassed boating safety education, but our heart is about membership that doesn’t end on Sunday and doesn’t care if the calendar says it’s winter. It’s about being together and building a community through a variety of events like parties, meetings and even just getting together for no reason at all.

In the Community

Our squadron members are vital to strengthening the communities they live in. It’s important to live our values by giving back through public service and volunteer opportunities. Whether we’re providing courtesy vessel safety checks, helping the National Ocean Service keep nautical charts accurate or organizing beach cleanups, we have a positive impact on our communities. And as an added bonus, it’s a great way for you and your family to make lasting memories.

Squadron Spotlight

It’s important for us to recognize squadrons that go above and beyond. They are the ones who are living our brand and embracing membership that goes beyond boating.
