Toy Sail Boat

Since 1934, Staten Island Sail and Power Squadron has been teaching safety to the boaters of Staten Island, New York. Staten Island is one of the five boroughs of New York City. A unit of the United States Power Squadrons, SISPS has a vibrant educational program including the public Safe Boating course and a variety of courses available to its members. All courses are taught by volunteer instructors. SISPS members also enjoy an active social calendar of parties, picnics, and on-water activities. In addition, SISPS supports charitable efforts in the community.

This coming Monday, May 29th is Memorial Day.

Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

Please take time to honor our men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military, protecting and preserving our freedoms.

If able, attend one of the many Memorial Day Ceremonies celebrated throughout the country and remember the reason for this National holiday. 


By January 1, 2025, every motorized boat operator in New York State will be required to hold a boating safety certificate.
Good time to obtain yours. Take the ABC Course. It does not expire

The following is from an article on News Break:

The summer of 2023 can't get here soon enough.The winter has been brutal and weird at the same time so far. From subzero temperatures to rain within the next 24 hours, this season has been anything but ordinary.For those who love winter sports it has been frustrating to say the least.

The groundhog is calling for six more weeks of winter but if that means rain, sleet and thank you! Bring on the sunshine and warm days!

But if you plan on getting on a boat in the next few years, there are some new laws and restrictions that you should be aware of that are looming here in New York State.

For those who prefer to pilot the boat rather than kick back and relax, you may want to plan ahead and take a course.

Important: All motorboat operators regardless of age will need a boating safety certificate beginning in 2025. For more information, go to the NYS PARKS website.

In addition to taking a course, some operators will need to carry a certificate with them when they are on the water.

Boating safety certificates are required for recreational boaters using motorized vessels, including personal watercraft. Operators of non-motorized boats, such as kayaks and canoes, are not required to have a boating safety certificate at this time.
