Bremerton Sail & Power Squadron installs new officers

In the time honored tradition of the United States Power Squadrons (USPS), Bremerton Sail & Power Squadron completed a transition of leadership during its Change of Watch ceremony. Commander Robert Allen, Seaman, dismissed all 2012-2013 sitting Bridge Officers, District 16 Commander John Sherrick, Senior Navigator, dismissed Cdr. Allen. District Commander Sherrick addressed attendees challenging them to explore new waters not only by visiting new ports, but extending boating knowledge and public service within USPS. Next D/Cdr. Sherrick installed Cdr. Jean Marie Muenzenberger, Advanced Pilot, as Commander of the Bremerton Sail & Power Squadron.

Cdr. Muenzenberger’s first order was to ask District 16 Executive Officer District Lieutenant Commander James Harden, Senior Navigator, to install the 2013-2014 Bridge Officers.  D/Lt/C Harden administered the oath to Executive Officer (XO), Lt/C Kevin J. Pisani, Junior Navigator, Squadron Education Officer (SEO) Lt/C Robert Anderson, Advanced Pilot, Administrative Officer (AO) Lt/C Gary Wade, Seaman, and Treasurer Lt/C Cindy Mills, Seaman.

The Bremerton Sail & Power Squadron is a non profit boating club that provides civic service by performing vessel safety checks (VSC), boating education and on-the-water training. They offer a number of classes to the general public such as America’s Boating Course (ABC), Skipper Saver, Seamanship, Engine Maintenance and more. Classes include on-the-water sessions.
