Compass points the way

Welcome to Compass, your new pathfinder in the dynamic world of boating. The United States Power Squadrons, already a leader in boating education, skill development and safety, breaks ground with this electronic news source.

Known for its premier magazine, The Ensign, USPS recognizes that some information can’t wait and so designed Compass to fill the need. Published bimonthly, Compass will contain information vital to the boating public as well as USPS members.

Since 1914, USPS has been an innovator in preparing boaters to enjoy their time on the water. From the early days of steam engine maintenance, on-the-water drills and celestial navigation to the fuel-injected jet boats and GPS plotters of today, USPS has been a leader in boating education, skills and fun. And the changes keep coming  In 2007, USPS kicks off operator certification and introduces new courses and seminars. Compass is your way of keeping up.

Our first issue, which focuses on the 20-25 Feb. USPS Annual Meeting in sunny Jacksonville, Fla., is jam-packed with the information you need to get the most from the meeting and USPS. I hope to see you there.

Please enjoy this issue of Compass and send any comments or suggestions to me at ns@usps.org .

National Secretary
