Welcome to the Tri-Cities Boating Club

A Unit of the United States Power Squadrons- America's Boating Club

The Tri-Cites Boating Club (TCBC) is a unit of the United States Power Squadrons, "America's Boating Club", serving Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia and Western North Carolina. The TCBC focuses on 3 areas:
  • Boating Education/Safety/Training
  • Community Service
  • Having fun on the many bodies of water in our area.

To those means, the TCBC offers both beginning and advanced boating classes, on-the-water, boat training, the opportunity to provide individuals who have never been on a boat on-the-water boating experiences, and plenty of opportunities to socialize with both sail and power boaters with all levels of boating experience.

The TCBC offers boaters of all ages and experience the opportunity to get more fun and fulfillment out of any boat by providing opportunities to learn boating safety and skills as well as enjoy a wide variety of social events on and off the water. You do not have to own a boat to participate in our offerings.

If you are a novice boater purchasing your first boat, an experienced boater looking to improve your navigational skills, a compassionate boater wanting to help youths learn boating safety, or just a fun loving boater who wants to have fun with other boaters, you have come to the right place.

Review our resources, learn how we can help you get the most out of your boating experience, or Contact Us for more information.
