United States Power Squadron, formed in 1914, is the largest fraternal boating organization in the United States. We have over 450 squadrons totaling more than 60,000 members across the U.S., Puerto Rico and Japan. We are a non-political, non-governmental organization, though we do work closely with the U.S. Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxillary, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, NOS and the Department of Natural Resources of most States.

The Akron Sail and Power Squadron is a unit of the United States Power Squadrons. The Akron Sail and Power Squadron became a charter member of USPS in 1939. We are in District 7 which is made up of 13 squadrons and covers the geographical area between Vermilion, OH, Pittsburgh, PA and northern W. Virginia.

The Akron Sail and Power Squadron offers Safe Boating Classes to the public which run for 6 to 8 weeks. These classes teach navigational aids, the rules of the road, how to anchor, different kinds of anchors, basic piloting, knots, docking, and basic seamanship. The instruction is free, although there is a nominal fee for the Student Manual and charting materials.
