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 March 9 entitled, "Tides and Currents."
Cruise confidently in coastal waters and secure your knowledge of tidal conditions. Even if you are an inland boater, you may travel to an area where knowing about tides and tidal currents is important.
Discover what causes the tides to rise and fall, and what causes the currents to flow. Learn where to find sources of information about tides and tidal currents, simple ways to predict height of tide and speed of current flow and how to use both print and electronic tide tables.
Learn about how tides and currents affect your boat's performance from experienced coastal boaters. Required for Coastal Navigator certificate (or Advance Piloting course).
