Palm Beach Sail and Power
Squadron (PBS&PS) is a unit of United States Power Squadrons.
Since our founding in 1944, PBS&PS has been
responsible for educating thousands of Florida boaters. One
of our main goals is to provide basic boating education
opportunities to the public and more advanced courses to our
members. These classes are all led by qualified volunteers.
United States Power Squadrons
is a three sided organization with education on one side,
civic service on another and fraternal on the third. Our
Squadron is involved in many Civic Service events. We also provide important update information for maintaining the navigation
charts. Our Fraternal/Social functions include weekly lunch
get togethers (Thursdays) and special
events such as picnics, dinners, rendezvous' and a
holiday gatherings. Our meetings are fun and informative with
presentations of local and nautical interest. We offer many
opportunities for member involvement throughout the year
that are designed for family members of all ages.
