The Daytona Beach Sail and Power Squadron serves the Daytona Beach Florida Area (See map) We are a District 23 Squadron. The Squadron 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.
We enjoy participating with our fellow members on the water and in the classroom. Our national organization, The United States Power Squadron, has some 40,000 members organized into 450 squadrons across the country and in some US territories.
The USPS is the world's largest non-profit boating organization and has been honored by three US presidents for its civic contributions.
Each squadron's activities involve the three primary objectives of USPS: community service, continuing education, and enjoying the friendship and camaraderie of our fellow members.
The DBSPS offers boating safety courses on a regular basis to boaters in our communities. These courses are open to the public and there is no age limit for participants. Our members also help the National Ocean Service keep our nautical charts accurate by reporting chart corrections, and our local squadrons participate in many other community improvement projects.
We offer carefully planned courses in subjects like Seamanship, Piloting, Plotting and Position Finding, Celestial Navigation, Cruise Planning, Engine Maintenance, Marine Electronics, Sailing, and much more. These courses are taught by experienced instructors.
Participating both on-the-water and off with fellow members who are skilled in boating is a rewarding and enjoyable experience. On-the-water activities include cruises, rendezvous, sail races, navigation contests and even fishing derbies. Activities ashore include meetings with marine programs, parties, dinner-dances, picnics and field trips.
If you are thinking of boating in a river, lake or ocean far from home, USPS has a Port Captain program which will provide names and telephone numbers of local USPS members who know the territory. Savings on Boat Insurance is available through marine insurance companies which provide discounts to those who complete advanced boating courses.
The DBSPS also performs free boat inspections and assists with boating and water safety questions.
