KSPS Programs
Boats and Brats - A social get-together in South Haven that offers free Vessel
Safety Checks.  Attend the picnic (we do ask for a donation to cover food costs),
but the boat inspection is free.

Vessel Safety Check Program - Get your boat inspected to see if you have all
    the necessary safety equipment and that it is working order. Inspection is free.  
    Only you get the report.  An annual VSC sticker lets Coast Guard and Sheriff's
    Department Marine Officers know you care about safe boating.

Cooperative Charting - A service project to help maintain nautical charts and
     safe waterways.  More on Coop Charting.

Predicted Log Contest - Test your skills in predicting your time against wind,
     water and current in your own boat.  Learn about Predicted Log Contest.

In addition we also have numerous social functions on and off the water,
     throughout the year.  See Events.    

We offer two ABC classes each year, one in Battle Creek and one in Kalamazoo.
These classes, taught by KSPS volunteers are free except for the text material.

More in depth classes are offered to our membership. These include elective and  
advanced courses in seamanship, piloting, navigation, engine maintenance, sail,
marine electronics, weather, etc..
