Power Squadron Courses: 2015-2016


Once again, the Greenwich Sail & Power Squadron has joined with its neighboring squadrons to form a Consortium that offers a wide range of Power Squadron courses. Be sure to take advantage of one of these interesting courses on boating.

Currently the Greenwich Squadron is offering a Piloting course. Note that next spring, we will be offering courses on Safe Boating, Weather, and Powerboat Handling on-the-water.
