Point Wilson Sail and Power Squadron

This year we are looking into several group outings and events.  Our monthly events are listed on the right.  Here is a list of items that are tentatively planned.  As they become firm we will update on the flyer above and calendar on right.

The class will meet at the NW School for Wooden Boatbuilding, 42 N. Water St., Port Hadlock, on the 5th of April from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM, only the first night to do registration. The class will run on subsequent Thursdays through June 7 from 6:30 -8:30 PM. The class concludes with a one week, take home, open book exam.Piloting is the first of the navigational classes focusing on techniques for piloting a boat in coastal and inland conditions. The course emphasizes planning and checking along with the use of GPS for determining position, and introduces digital charting along with traditional charting, compass and dead reckoning skills.

What's Happening

Plotting, labeling, use of the compass, aids to navigation and a host of related topics are included in this all-new approach to coastal and inland piloting. This course uses a plotter and dividers, which must be bought separately and may be purchased at your choice online or locally at West Marine in Port Townsend.  Navigation tools may be shared by 2, but better if each person has their own.
Cost: Cost:  General public non-member: $103 +$15 extra non-member sharing book
Power Squadron members:  $73 + 10 for extra member same household sharing book.
Boat School members:  $93 + $10 extra household non-member sharing book
Call Sandra Smith-Poling at 360-379-1178 to reserve a seat by March 5, 2018 or email:  spoling47@gmail.com as we have to order the textbooks a month before class begins. No payment required until registration the first night of class.

Staying because of Friends

We are your friends and neighbors living in East Jefferson county who are members of an organization which encourages and promotes safe, skilled handling and navigation of sail and power boats. We are a local unit of the United States Power Squadrons®, a voluntary, non-profit fraternal boating organization that has the objectives of education and civic service.  We end up being life-long friends enjoying the wonders of Puget Sound together.
