About the Titusville Sail & Power Squadron
Titusville Sail & Power Squadron is one of more than 450 Squadrons throughout the United States and the Caribbean; there is even a Squadron in Tokyo, Japan. Our Squadron's 70 plus members are part of 34,000 that make up the total membership. The USPS has evolved into the largest private, fraternal, self-supporting, non-profit, non-governmental and non-military organization of power and sail boaters in the world.
The Titusville Sail & Power Squadron has its own history, an interesting one as well.
Our first title was Cape Canaveral Power Squadron, named after the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse - built initially in 1847, a well known landmark for mariners. We were chartered on April 11, 1960 with 23 members and the first Commander was David A. Allen.
We were renamed Titusville Power Squadron on October 10, 1983 with 36 members. The Squadron kept this name until 2001 when it was proposed that we should include Sail in our title. This more accurately reflected our purpose - to welcome and serve all boaters in Titusville and surrounding areas.
Our membership has grown somewhat since the early days, but our charter of serving the public through conducting safe boating classes and offering free vessel safety checks has never changed. For our members, our Squadron continues to offer advanced boating education that cannot be matched in quality or cost anywhere commercially.
Interested in knowing more? We meet on the third Thursday of each month, except during the months of June, July and August. If you would like more information or would like to attend one of our meetings, just click here.
