About The Ensign

Since 1914, The Ensign has been the official magazine of United States Power Squadrons, America’s Boating Club. Our mission is to inform, educate and entertain members and other boating enthusiasts.

Every issue contains boating tips and sage advice from experienced boaters who’ve been there, done that, and literally wrote the books.

Join our team

The Ensign magazine couldn’t exist without a team of volunteer writers, photographers, and avid boaters like you. Our contributors have gone on to publish books and win writing awards, so you’re in good company.

We welcome real-life boating adventures, cruising tales, how-to project guides, articles about boating lessons learned, informational videos, boating news, and much more. Peruse our back issues to get a feel for the types of content we publish. Then contact us with your ideas or a rough draft. We can’t wait to work with you.
