For Boaters, By Boaters®


We are America's Boating Club-Inland Northwest, aka as Spokane Sail and Power Squadron. We provide boating education for the Inland Northwest. We are comprised of boaters who collectively have decades of boating experience whether sail, power or even steam. Most of our boating is done in the lakes of North Idaho and waters of Eastern Washington, but we have members who have extensive experience in Puget Sound, the Inside Passage and Southeast Alaska.

Whether you are brand new to boating or whether you want to improve your expertise in marine related topics, we are likely to have the courses and expertise to be of help. Not only do we offer formal courses, but in conjunction we can provide on the water training on your boat.

During the boating off season we have regularly monthly meetings where we usually have a speaker providing useful or interesting talks that are boating related.

The Spokane Sail and Power Squadron is a local affiliate of the United States Power Squadrons®, a nonprofit boating safety educational organization that is over 100 years old. Check out our website for courses of interest and also take a look at some of the benefits and savings offered to our members. Take a Look...
