The Lake Charles Sail & Power Squadron, located in southwest Louisiana, is one of over 450 squadrons that form United States Power Squadrons. USPS is not a part of, or supported by, the U.S. Government. The term "Power Squadron" in our name dates to our founding in 1914 by the powerboat division of the Boston Yacht Club. Starting as a club within a club, USPS today is a private, self-supporting, thriving organization made up of members in 33 districts across the country. It is the world's largest non-profit boating organization and has been honored by three presidents for its civic contributions. USPS squadrons reach from Puerto Rico to Tokyo. The ranks have broadened to include all types of boats and sailors. The purpose of the USPS is to promote boating safety through education and community service.

The Lake Charles Sail & Power Squadron was chartered in 1952. Our members are boating families who contribute to the community by promoting safe boating through education. We have been offering boating safety courses ever since. These courses are open to the public and there is no age limit for participants. We have an educational program dedicated to making boating safer and more enjoyable by teaching classes in seamanship, navigation and related subjects. Our members also help the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration keep our nautical charts accurate by reporting chart corrections. We also offer a free vessel inspection program for boaters in our community. We also have many activities for members such as cruises, rendezvous, navigation contests and other social activities throughout the year. Activities ashore include meetings with marine programs, parties, dinners, picnics and field trips.
