Welcome to the Ponce de Leon Inlet Sail & Power Squadron!
We are a unit of District 23 (see map) under the United States Power Squadrons®, a non-profit boating safety education organization; and, are located on the East Atlantic Coast in East/Southeast Volusia County Florida. Centered in the Ponce Inlet, Port Orange, New Smyrna Beach/Edgewater-Oak Hill area, our goal is to promote safe boating on our waters and to ensure everybody is equipped with the knowledge needed to make responsible decisions behind the helm. We achieve these goals by offering educational courses, classes, instruction, and fellowship that teach community and member boaters the essentials as well as the most advanced aspects needed. Along with offering classes to the public, the Squadron also plans activities designed to bring together the community and enjoy our waterways. Ponce de Leon Inlet Sail & Power Squadron extends a welcome to everybody willing to enjoy boating to its fullest extent.
District 23 is one of the 33 Districts which make up the United States Power Squadrons®, the world's largest non-profit, family oriented, recreational boating organization devoted to safe boating through education. Our National Organization has more than 40,000 enthusiastic members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico who provide public boating education courses to all current and prospective boaters. Districts are made up of local squadrons in their regional areas. District 23 is composed of ten squadrons located in Northeastern and Central Florida, with a total membership of about 960 members.
USPS squadrons, as part of their civic services, conduct boating courses for the general public. In this regard, all ten squadrons of District 23 hold America's Boating Course®for the public.

Many boat insurance companies will offer discounts on boating insurance to boaters who successfully complete America's Boating Course. And, this beginner boating class will give you the knowledge needed to obtain a boat license or safety certification in many states.
America's Boating Course can be taken in any of three ways: on the Internet, by studying a 244-page course manual, or with a CD. No matter how you like to learn, when you sign up you'll receive a complete package that includes the course manual, the boating course CD, and a PIN number giving you access to the Internet course. The course manual, CD and online course contain identical material, except for your state-specific boating law, which can only be accessed online. This boat safety course is fun and very thorough.
