Local Knowledge About Area Lakes And Service Resources
What is a Port Captain? Think of this volunteer as the squadron’s concierge; you know, like the staff member at a fancy hotel who does everything from handling luggage and mail to getting you tickets to that Broadway show you wanted to see.
A USPS Port Captain stands ready, at times of his or her choosing, to provide advice and assistance to USPS members, and if the Port Captain chooses, to others making contact. The Port Captain can recommend local mechanics, sail makers, and repair yards in the area as well as medical and dental facilities. The Port Captain also can direct weary sailors and boaters to local restaurants and motels. While Port Captains are under no obligation to provide more than friendly advice, they are persons who enjoy meeting people and helping their fellow boaters.
