Hilton Head Sail and Power Squadron
Boating is fun, let us show you how!
We are a unit of the United States Power Squadrons®, which is the world's largest non-profit boating organization. It is often called "America's boating club".
Our members are families who contribute to their communities by promoting safe boating, on the water and in the classroom. Our squadron is located on Hilton Head Island, which is at the South-Eastern corner of South Carolina, at 32º10'33.88" N, 80º46'22.88" W. Many of our members live on Hilton Head, while some reside just over the bridge in Bluffton, SC.
The Hilton Head Sail & Power Squadron offers boating courses and seminars throughout the year. Our next seminar will be offered on December 10 entitled, "Basic Weather and forecasting."
THIS SEMINAR IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
The safety and comfort of those who venture out-on-the-water have always been weather dependent. This seminar is a must for boaters who have never taken a weather course. The complex subject of weather is presented in a way that is both understandable and useful. Each seminar participant receives a waterproof McGraw Hill Captain’s QuickGuide – Onboard Weather Forecasting – designed for onboard and field use. Each participant also receives a full color Student Guide with slide images and complete notes written especially for the seminar.
