Make a Difference – Come Join Us
Beverly-Marblehead Sail & Power Squadron (BMSPS) provides opportunities to continue your Boating Education, Socialize with Members, and participate in Community Activities. BMSPS also provides an opportunity to Make a Difference.
You can start by taking courses and seminars, and joining us at fun member events. Then you can help others by becoming active in our Education Team, either teaching a topic yourself or starting as an assistant. If your “taste” is more on the social side, there are opportunities to become active in our Meetings & Events Team. As a Vessel Examiner, you can help educate boaters on what makes the safest boat!
