Welcome to Gabriola Island Power and Sail Squadron

We are a unit of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS – ECP), volunteers teaching safe boating. We want to share with the boating public and those interested in boating, even if they do not have a boat, the knowledge and experiences that will make leisure water activities the best they can be.

During the 2020 Pandemic our Squadron offers self-study courses for the Radio Operator Certificate (ROC M) and the Pleasure Craft Operator Certificate (PCOC – Boating 1). Our Squadron is also offering the blended course online Boating 2 and 3 Combined (Beyond Boating Basics + Introduction to Marine Navigation)  and the blended course online Boating 4 – Near Shore Marine Navigation- Level 1 (previously called Seamanship).  For information on how to register for any of these four courses with our Gabriola Squadron, check out the Course Information page.

2020 Squadron AGM: November 1, 2020. See the Upcoming Events page for details.
