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. Next month we will be offering "Fuel and Boating."
