Increase Your Boating Know-How The Friendly Way
Get more enjoyment from your time on the water. The internet and books are great resources, but nothing beats learning about boating from real people. You can learn a lot hanging around with a group that’s been on the water collectively for as many years as we have. Not to brag, but here you’ll find experienced people who want to see you become safe and competent on the water.
With a USPS boating education, You’ll benefit from quality courses that are still affordable, backed by a national organization that has been doing this since 1914. You’ll combine your classroom study with on-the-water components.And studying together builds camaraderie with fellow students that you can’t find anywhere else.
Boating Is A People Activity. LHS&PS people like to get together year round. We’re on land in the winter, on the water in the summer, and we double-up and do both in the fall and spring. We’ve got raft ups and cruises, dinners and holiday parties, and a speaker series with some top-notch presentations. You can just do the education classes if you want, but we bet you’ll find your way to a social event sooner or later.
Stretch Your Boating Dollar. USPS members enjoy a full locker of discounts. Most insurance companies give discounts to members. And why wouldn’t they? We´re always talking about safer boating. But we´re a pretty big organization nationally, and we’ve got some good product discounts worked out too. From charts to software, online boating stores and PC´s, small boats and even seafood, we probably have a discount program you can really use.
Give Back To The Community. Take advantage of our civic service programs, including helping with the public boating course, keeping our charts accurate with the Cooperative Charting Program, participating in the Vessel Safety Check program, or serving as a Port Captain. We have other activities that raise money for worthy local charities.
