WELCOME ABOARD! The Tar River Sail and Power Squadron (TRSPS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to boating safety through education. While we are just one of the more than 450 Squadrons in the United States Power Squadrons and a member of District 27 (North Carolina), we are unique in many ways. Our members, our local customs, and our activities are different from any other Squadron.
Founded in 1983, the Tar River Sail and Power Squadron is an offshoot of the Kinston Power Squadron. With local members from the Greenville and Washington, NC areas, our squadron is proud of its heritage and dedication to safe boating, self-education, civic service and social activities. Nautical courses are offered yearly and are taught in an educational environment. These courses range from Seamanship to Celestial Navigation to Engine Maintenance to Cruise Planning. Tar River Sail and Power Squadron members contribute toward civic service through the Public Boating courses, reporting of nautical chart corrections and additions to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to name as few.
Regular TRSPS membership meetings offer programs that are interesting and instructive, usually on nautical and related topics, as well as a chance to meet socially with other members. Social affairs and rendezvous are also a regular part of the TRSPS calendar with numerous of coastal and inland boating events scheduled each year. We hope you enjoy your visit to our web site and we wish you fair winds and clear skies!
