Port CaptainsPort Captain Flag

  • A Port Captain is a member of America's Boating Club, who stands ready, at all times of his or her choosing, to provide advice and assistance to members, and if the Port Captain chooses, to others making contact.
  • The Port Captain can recommend mechanics, sail makers, and repair yards in the area as well as medical and dental facilities in his or her locale. the Port Captain can also direct weary sailors and boaters to local restaurants and motels.
  • The Port Captain is familiar with the activities of local USPS® squadrons, the U.S. Coast Guard and the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
  • While Port Captains are under no obligation to provide more than friendly advice, they are persons who enjoy meeting people and serving their fellows. Their primary expertise lies in their knowledge of local waters and unmarked hazards to safe navigation. The objective is to provide information, reliable advice and comradeship. Their aim is make fellow members feel they are welcome and have found a friend.
