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 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 This will again allow local boaters to be able to legally dispose of their outdated flares (must be replaced after four years from date of manufacture) while at the same time learning, through hands on firing of their outdated flares, how these things actually work.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. There will be more information as the date draws closer next boating season.

Quinte District is part of Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons and covers an area bounded in the west by the city of Ajax, in the east by the city of Prince Edward County, in the north by the cities of Peterborough and the City of Kawartha Lakes, and on the south side Lake Ontario.

The District Council meets four times a year at the Cobourg Yacht Club. Anyone is welcome to attend a District Council meeting.

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