The United States Power Squadrons (USPS) represent more than 60,000 individual members joined together in over 450 squadrons with a common objective of good fellowship, service to the community, and the advancement of safe and fun boating.

Fort Vancouver Sail & Power Squadron is located in Vancouver, Washington. Chartered in 1962, we are one of six squadrons that make up USPS District 32, serving Oregon and Southwest Washington. (Map)

Our mission is to promote safe, fun boating through education and awareness. We support National Safe Boating Week by encouraging boaters to take part in a Public Boating Class, a USPS Seminars or our advanced courses.

In addition we strive to provide an outstanding on-going education program for our members through the USPS classes and educational presentations at our meetings.

Through a program known as Cooperative Charting, we have assisted the federal government in keeping their navigational charts current by reporting changes that have taken place since the last chart was printed.

We strive to instill these principals in our young adults by being proud sponsors of the Sea Scout Ship 202 Deja Vu.

If your boat is propelled by an engine, the wind or a good old fashion paddle we have a group for you. Be sure to visit our special interest groups page.
