What is the Toledo Power Squadron?

      The Toledo Power Squadron is a group of individuals dedicated to making recreational boating safer and more fun! Our members participate by: going on cruises, volunteering their time to teach classes and seminars, performing vessel safety checks and much, much more! We try our best to make our activities fun while promoting boating safety.

      The Toledo Power Squadron has members from all over northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan, but the primary area where we draw members from is metropolitan Toledo. Our members do most of their boating in western Lake Erie including the Erie Islands. In addition to that, we get together once a month, from September through June for regular business meetings at the Toledo Yacht Club. For a map to the Toledo Yacht Club click here.

      The Toledo Power Squadron was formed in 1938 and is a unit of the United States Power Squadrons (USPS). Organized in 1914, USPS 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. USPS has some 60,000 members organized into 450 squadrons across the country and in some US territories. USPS is America'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:

bullet community service
bullet continuing education
bullet enjoying the friendship and camaraderie of our fellow members

      The United States Power Squadrons are organized into regional Districts and then into local Squadrons. The Toledo Power Squadron is a local squadron and is a member of District29. The Districts tie the squadrons together and provide administrative oversight.
