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.
