Pre-requisites to Join

Our main pre-requisite to joining is education. Not only are we a social organization and know how to have a good time, we are also very education centric. We pride ourselves on the knowledge and experience that is contained within our ranks. Prospective members must have at least basic knowledge about boating. If you do not presently have this knowledge, we are happy to pass it on to you!

We encourage everyone to take The Squadron Boating Course (Dates and Times). This eight week course covers the basic knowledge mariners need to operate a boat safely. If you have not taken this course, but feel that you posess a sufficient level of knowledge to join, you may take the test that we administer at the end of the Squadron Boating Course and test out of the class.

There are other courses that are taught by additional organizations that also meet our education pre-requisite. These include the following:

      Holders of U. S. Coast Guard 6 Pak Licenses and above.

      Canadian Power Squadron - Boating Course

      USCGAux - Boating Skills & Seamanship or Sailing & Seamanship Courses

      American Sailing Assn. - (ASA) Basic Keelboat Sailing Course

      US Sailing - Basic Keelboat Certification Course

      US Sailing - Keelboat Instructor Course
