About Us


The Charleston Sail and Power Squadron (America's Boating Club Charleston) is a boating club whose members are devoted to boating, continuing education, and community service. Chartered in 1946, we are one of hundreds of squadrons of the United States Power Squadrons® and one of fourteen in District 26.    Our boats are located in and near Charleston Harbor in South Carolina, and our headquarters building is in the City of Charleston.

Members and non-members may select boating courses from basic boat handling, to basic and advanced navigation. In addition, members are offered courses in engine maintenance, weather, electronics and other electives. The squadron offers the America's Boating Course to the public, on a regular basis, as a Civic Service.

The squadron participates in the annual cleanup of the local marine environment including rivers and boat ramps. We offer free Vessel Safety Checks for all boats. Members enjoy monthly boating outings as well as a monthly dinner meetings where programs of maritime interest is presented. A quarterly newsletter, the Palmetto Log, highlights monthly events and relevant Squadron notices.

We encourage folks interested in boating, whether boat-owners or not, to join us! Take a look around, and contact our Commander (commander.csps@gmail.com) or our Membership Chair (membershipchair.csps@gmail.com) for more information.
