The Sarasota Power and Sail Squadron (SPSS) was founded in 1952 and today is one of the largest of the USPS Squadrons, with close to 325 local members. We are a totally volunteer organization.
The Sarasota Power & Sail Squadron is located along Florida’s southwest coast and only a few minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. We all share an interest in boating: power, sail, kayaks, and other types of personal watercraft. Our goal is to promote the principles of water safety to our members and to the local community. We encourage fun social events for our members and aim to build a close community relationship through various service projects. Learn more about us:
