Welcome to the New Britain Power Squadron website! Since 1940 we have been a fraternal boating club dedicated to making new friends and having fun while boating. We also stress the importance of self-education, through the participation in our elective courses and learning guides.
We are one of thirteen squadrons in District 1 of USPS, our parent organization, which supports our squadron, along with the others in the Connecticut - Springfield, MA - Western Rhode Island area. ()
We believe in civic service through our , local boating safety programs, the National Ocean Survey Cooperative Charting Program, and the USPS/USCG Aux. Vessel Safety Check Program. We engage in a wide range of activities, both on and off the water, as you can see in the slide show below. Some members may or may not have boats of their own, but share a common interest - Safe boating for all!
If you live in the central Connecticut, we welcome you to join! Please explore our website. Learn about the boating safety and seamanship courses we offer and the various events that we sponsor. If you are looking for ways to get more enjoyment and feel more secure in your boating activities, our group may be what you are looking for. Enjoy the camaraderie of like minded folk. Teach and learn by sharing knowledge and experiences!
If you'd like to join us, we welcome you to one of our monthly meetings, held at 146 Hudson Street in Berlin. Visit our page for directions and meeting details.
Again, thanks for visiting and we look forward to meeting you soon!
