Tri-Cities Boating Club, also known as the Johnson City Sail & Power Squadron, is a non-profit organization that is a unit of the United States Power Squadrons (USPS), America’s Boating Club. It is part of the “Dixie” District, District 17. USPS has some 40,000 members organized into 430 squadrons across the country and in some US territories. USPS is America’s largest non-profit boating organization and has been honored by three US presidents for its civic contributions.

Our mission is to make boating safe and more enjoyable by teaching classes in seamanship, navigation and related subjects. Our members are boating families who contribute to the community by promoting safe boating through education. We enjoy the company of our fellow members on the water and in the classroom.

Tri-Cities Boating Club is the area’s premiere boating organization on Boone, Patrick Henry, South Holston and Watauga Lakes. We are the authority on boating education, safety and fun and we’d love to have you join!
