SPSS Activities

We enjoy the friendship and camaraderie on-the-water and off with fellow members who are skilled in boating. We have many opportunities for safe boating fun with scheduled day, weekend, and longer trips throughout the year. Going as a group affords us “safety in numbers” while, at the same time, allows us to enjoy the company of fellow boaters. Other activities include monthly Cruise & Rendezvous which are held at on-the-water locations, raft-ups, and navigation contests. Check out all that is planned on the Boating Calendar.
