Flare Safety and Demonstration Day: RCAF Trenton Power and Sail Squadron will again be hosting, along with 8 Wing Trenton and CFB Trenton Yacht Club, our 2nd biannual flare RCAF Trenton safety and demonstration day at the end of the 2018 boating season. This will again allow local boaters to be able to legally dispose of their outdated flares (must be replaced after four years from date of manufacture) while at the same time learning, through hands on firing of their outdated flares, how these things actually work. It is too late to learn when an emergency strikes your boat. Put Saturday September 15, 2018 on your calendar for this event.
*BBQ will be set up on the deck area and the bar will be opened at 1400. The meal will be $5.00.

We have seven Squadrons in Quinte District that offer boating courses and have a number of special events throughout the year.

To make inquiries about the District or its Squadrons you can contact District Council Officers or the Commanders of the Member Squadrons.
