“Come for the Boating Education...Stay for the Friends”
Thank you for visiting the The United States Power Squadron's local Music City Power Squadron web site. This web site is designed to provide information about the United States Power Squadrons® and the local boating educational opportunities provide by our Music City Power Squadron serving Nashville, TN. Our members are from Middle Tennessee.
The Music City Power Squadron offers great ways to help satisfy a desire for recreational sail and power boating. When you get out on the water look for our boats with the burgee below on our bow staff or starboard spreader and the United States Power Squadron® Ensign attached to our stern staff.
Nashville, Tennessee and surrounding counties is home for the Music City Power Squadron. The squadron was founded in 1994 as a unit of the United States Power Squadrons® whose origin traces back to 1914. The Squadron offers comprehensive Boating Safety Courses and special topic Seminars for the boating public at various times and places during each year. The Music City Power Squadron is made up of men and women who have a common love and appreciation of recreational boating and who are willing to contribute time, energy, and skills to boat safety education and other objectives of the Squadron.

"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the things you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Attributed to Mark Twain
