There are ample opportunities for fellowship through our monthly meetings, picnics, community events and cruising programs. NOSPS's typical cruising ground is from Olympia in South Puget Sound to Desolation Sound in Canada. We plan a number of cruises each year and participate in joint cruises with the Sequim Bay Yacht Club and Port Angeles Yacht Club as well as rendezvous with other squadrons within our District 16.

NOSPS instituted the Adopt-A-Marina program, which is gaining National recognition. Once a month various
members of NOSPS contribute a few hours of their time to assisting in the maintenance of the John Wayne
Marina in Sequim. NOSPS efforts insure the grounds of the marina are always in pristine condition. NOSPS
also participates in the yearly Sequim Irrigation Festival parade. In addition, NOSPS is a participant in a Cooperative
Charting Program providing a valuable public service helping to insure the accuracy of maritime charts of local waters.
