Boating Education - Brockville
Courses and Information for Recreational Boaters
Canada's National Boating Educator
Welcome to the Brockville Squadron of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons®. The CPS's goal is:
"Safe Boating through Education."
So, the most important thing we do is to offer Courses!!!
In support of our educational program, we have a local membership in the low-100's, monthly meetings of the Bridge, an annual general meeting, and annual Graduation/Awards Party and occasional social meetings (see Events).
Tall Ships Booth
Fri. Aug. 30 thru Sun. Sep. 1
Come see the CPS booth at the Tall Ships Challenge , downtown in Brockville.
Find out there about the savings on the Boating 2 course. And we would just love the support and encouragement of seeing as many of our members as possible.
Consider volunteering at the booth - 2-hour stints starting late Friday afternoon, and all day Saturday and Sunday (includes free admission to the event, and gifts!). You won't be alone and will meet and influence many wonderful people - contact Guy for details. (Also, all Rideau District members will have received an email with more detail.)
We always welcome people willing to serve.
- Foremost, people teach or assist with many of our courses.
- Secondly, we can always use help on the Bridge, which meets monthly and performs functions to support our training program and our membership.
Volunteering introduces you to lots of interesting boaters, and is a great way to make an important contribution while expanding your own boating horizons.
Squadron Email List
We maintain a Brockville Squadron Email Address List. See an explanation from a past Secretary.
We keep this list completely confidential! No member addresses will appear in any "mass emailings", and of course it is only for local Squadron use.
If you're not sure whether you're on the list or not, then please sign up - it will make the work of your hard-working volunteer Bridge officers much easier, and they deserve every break they can get! Send an email to our General Inquiry address.
Remember to update your email address with us if it changes.
If you would like a Brockville Squadron Burgee (upper left), contact the Regalia Officer.
As of 2005 June, we added a gold bar to our burgee, recognizing fifty years as a Squadron. They cost $30 each, all inclusive. Print off an Order Form.
Beyond Education: Insurance!
We are first and foremost an educational organization. Next to that, many members find the major benefit of membership is the really amazing discounts - and stellar service, with the CPS-sponsored agent - on our boat insurance.
The savings on insurance much more than compensate for our very low annual dues.
The Brockville Power and Sail Squadron has a Facebook page.
