Enlist as a Sailor for an evening with us boaters!

The Mid Potomac Sail and Power Squadron’s (MPSPS) Commander, Marla Spath, cordially invite boating enthusiasts of all degrees to join us for an interesting and educational guest speaker for our Monthly General Membership meeting in November. Our November 14th, 7:00 PM speaker will be Richard Suslick, a long-time sail boater, giving us a candid chronicle of his sailing trip from Wisconsin all the way down to Solomon Island Maryland.  This meeting will be at the Harbour Inn Community Center at 1417 Washington Drive, Stafford, Virginia.     MPSPS is part of the United States Power Squadrons (USPS) that is America’s largest and oldest nonprofit recreational / educational boating organization dedicated to making boating safer and more enjoyable by teaching classes in basic boating, seamanship, navigation and related subjects. We invite you to join our family by promoting safe boating through education and participating with us in a wide variety of social activities both on and off the water.  For more information contact Sam Edelman, MPSPS Adjutant at
