Come for the Boating Education...
Stay for the FriendsSM
The Berea Power Squadron is a group of individuals dedicated to helping recreational boaters advance their boating skills. Increasing your boating skills will allow you to be more at ease on the water, which will allow you to be more relaxed and have more fun. Our members participate by: going on cruises, volunteering their time to teach classes and seminars, performing vessel safety checks and much, much more! We try our best to make our activities fun while increasing our boating skill set.

One of the Tall ships that took part in the Battle of Lake Erie Reenactment may be lost at sea. All hands had to abandon ship. A locator and tracking beacon has been placed aboard. Hopefully she survives and can be towed back to port when the weather clears up.
Berea Power Squadron has officially changed it's name to Berea Sail and Power Squadron. The website is adorned with a new masthead which features the new name, and was brought into compliance with the National Branding Manual. I welcome all comments and criticisms on the new design: email@example.com.
We may be exploring the possibility of getting a new URL for this website. Some of the URL's that I explored, that are available:
Personally, I like bsaps.org, only because it is short. I always though our current URL is much too long.
Technically, this is a boat. This is what happens when cabin fever starts to rise...
Hats off the United States Coast Guard for helping everyone, even if the victims story is a bit suspicious.
This looks like a blast. I think this is going to be huge!
Our own Dave and Eileen Rickard got mentioned in Norm Schultz's blog yesterday! Norm's blog is held in high regard and read by many people in the boating industry.
Always make sure you're motor mounts are tightened up well.
The Coast Guard rescued three men from Lake Erie early Wednesday after their fishing boat began taking on water and capsized just north of Kelley's Island. For more information:
The article mentions the benefits of using a VHF Marine radio for distress calls over using a Cell Phone. Let me suggest one more reason: There are many areas of Lake Erie in U.S. waters, where your cell phone will switch to a Canadian Carrier. Just last weekend, my wife's phone switched to Canada while standing on South Bass Island! While dialing 911 will get you to the authorities in Canada, it may delay the response if your position is in U.S. Waters.
