We are America's Boating Club of Colorado, originally chartered as Boulder Valley Sail & Power Squadron in 1977. Our members enjoy boating and social activities as a unit of America's Boating Club™, the largest non-profit boating organization in the country.
You are likely to find us gathering with our friends at a sailing rendezvous in the Colorado mountains or a charter in the BVI, teaching or attending boating classes, performing vessel safety checks in the area, or meeting for social activities or club business. Take a tour of our website through the main menu where you will find such things as our events calendar and award winning newsletter The Beacon.
Visitors are always welcome at our membership meetings, typically in Boulder Colorado. They are held the fourth Thursday of the month, check our calendar for specific dates and location or touch Contact Us.
