CPS-ECP Bay of Quinte Squadron has been sharing boating knowledge in the Belleville area since 1954.
We are one of over 150 squadrons across Canada that belong to the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS-ECP). One of the largest volunteer organizations in Canada.
Boaters always have stories to share - whether you've been on the water 30 days or 30 years, we learn from each other.
From the PCOC (boating license) to formal classroom training - we are the only organization to offer courses intended to bring you back to port safely every time.
We are a group of volunteers committed
to helping others learn to boat safely.
Check here to see what courses
are coming soon!
The Yardarm is produced 3 times a year.- Spring, Summer & Winter.
Membership supports our education programs - offering affordable training with volunteers who have years of boating experience. We also have a bit of fun while learning from each other.
