The Tokyo Sail & Power Squadron is one of the 350 squadrons that make up the USPS, or United States Power Squadrons. We are a part of California-based District 13, and the only squadron in the USPS located outside of the United States and Puerto Rico. Currently we have over 100 members in the squadron, mostly from the Tokyo region, and there are a number of member power and sail boats in the TSPS fleet.
We are an active squadron with activities planned most months of the year. These range from monthly get-togethers in central Tokyo pubs to overnight and week-long cruises to other regions in Japan. As a boating safety and education organization we offer boating classes and seminars throughout the year for everyone from the absolute beginner to the advanced boater. One of these courses is our very popular twice-yearly Japanese Class 1 and 2 License seminar, in which we can proudly say we have a 90%+ success rate.
The TSPS website serves our membership by providing up-to-the-minute information on our many educational, social, and boating activities in the Tokyo area in the Scuttlebutt Blog.
