Celebrate 70

2019 is a milestone year!

Port Dover Power & Sail Squadron will be celebrating 70 years of safe boating through education in the waters of Norfolk County and surrounding communities.  This year is extra special as we reunite with the members of the former Brant Squadron and welcome them to our community of avid boaters.

To kick off our season of celebration, we welcome you join us for an evening of catching up, recognizing our volunteers and students, enjoying a delicious buffet dinner as well as a chat with Film Maker, Sailor and Adventurer, Jennifer Pate at the picturesque Fescue’s Edge Golf Course in Scotland.
