Welcome to District 28 of America's Boating Club
We are America’s Boating Club, District 28. We are a non-profit boating organization devoted to safe boating through education. Our members consist of enthusiastic sailors and power boaters. Our national organization, America’s Boating Club, meets the needs of all boaters, both power and sail, big and small, by providing public boating education courses to all current or prospective boaters; and by offering advanced boating education and fraternal boating to their members. It is the squadrons who conduct the public boating courses and are the real heart of the USPS organization. Click here for more about America’s Boating Club

The mission of the America’s Boating Club is to promote recreational Boating Safety through education and civic activities while providing fellowship for our members.
All AB Club Squadron Members in Southern California are automatically members of the AB Club District 28. Our members are boating families who contribute to their communities by promoting safe boating through education. All of our squadrons offer boating safety classes and seminars to the public and a rich series of Advanced and subject specific courses to the members, on the water and in the classroom.

Our District Commander and five Lieutenant Commanders are collectively known as the District Bridge. They are supported by a large number of officers and committees leading every aspect of our operation. To see a list of these committees click here.
The District serves as the link between USPS and our local squadrons. It serves as a resource to the squadron leadership by providing information and guidance to the squadron officers and committees. It also provides feedback to the national organization about items of concern to the squadrons. Each squadron officer has a district counterpart who can provide information and answer questions.
