Welcome to the Kincardine Power and Sail Squadron home page. We are a part of the Georgian Trent District of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons – Escadrilles Canadiennes de Plaisance (CPS-ECP), a nation-wide, non-profit, organization. Membership is over 26,000.

Our mission

We are a volunteer organization of boaters dedicated to promoting safe boating through training. We offer courses about boating, seamanship, navigation & VHF Marine radio.

What we can do for you

The Kincardine Power & Sail Squadron (Kincardine CPS) is run by volunteers keen on helping people learn how to boat safely. The cost to students for any of our courses is for books, materials and incidentals only. In Kincardine we have instructors who have both a lot of knowledge about boating and also decades of teaching experience.

Earn the Operator’s Card (PCOC) - Please note that it is now law that everyone operating a motorized vessel must have his or her Pleasure Craft Operators Card (PCOC). Successful completion of our ‘PCOC Course’ on the web earns the Operator’s Card. Click here for more information.

If you have the PCOC and want to learn more – Take the ‘Beyond the PCOC’ and ‘Introduction to Navigation’ Courses which are developed for those who have earned a PCOC from any provider. Click here to learn more.

May the winds be fair, the fishing be good, the anchorages be protected, and the boating be safe!
