Tampa Power Squadron Membership
Membership in the Tampa Power Squadron is open to the public. All we ask is that you share the same love of boating that we do. Membership does have benefits. First is that you become a member of the worlds largest and oldest non-profit recreational boating organization. USPS 60,000 plus members are dedicated to boating safety and education. With numerous classes available varying from basic safety and seamanship to celestial navigation, there are educational opportunites for all skill levels. Speaking of classes, they can be significantly cheaper for members and you gain access to classes taught by other squadrons which can be very helpful if you have a busy schedule. Notifying your insurance company can often get premium reductions as you take and pass additional courses.
Another benefit of membership is the wealth of boating knowledge which is only a phonecall away. From local knowledge of the waters to engine maintenance to how to hook up your electronics you would be hard pressed to come up with a question that someone inthe squadron can't answer as our members have hundreds of years of experience and have "been there, done that".
Last but by no means least, is the camaraderie we all share. We have many social events as well as our general and executive meetings. These events vary from dinner at a restaurant to cardboard boat races, kite flying competitions, group cruises and just plain old picnics. If you are a boater and are looking for other boaters who share a love of boating, we invite you to contact us about membership.
