Miles River Sail and Power Squadron, a unit of United States Power Squadrons®, a nationwide non-profit organization of boating enthusiasts, both power and sail, dedicated to promoting boating safety through education. We were chartered in 1953 and are members of District 5.

We live on the Eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, primarily in Talbot County, Maryland. We live in Easton, Talbot's largest town, in historic St Michaels on the Miles River, in Oxford on the Tred Avon, as well as in numerous surrounding small towns and communities. We regularly boat the Miles, the Tred Avon, nearby rivers, creeks, and bays, but cruise the entire extent of the Chesapeake .....and beyond
