Important updates


2017 National Maritime Day observed

As has been the case for more than 80 years, the United States observed National Maritime Day on May 22. Congress first fixed that date in 1933, marking the day in 1819 when the S.S. Savannah left her namesake city on the first powered trans-Atlantic sailing. The President's 2017 proclamation of Maritime Day is on the White House website.  

For many years, Propeller Club Ports have made it a priority to observe Maritime Day by remembering those who sailed, and who gave their lives in service to the Merchant Marine.  

Salute to Congress honors Sen. Hirono

A crowd of maritime industry leaders came together to honor U.S. Senator Mazie K. Hirono with the 33rd annual Salute to Congress award on May 2.  She has been a supporter of the maritime industry throughout her time representing Hawaii, first in the House, then in the Senate as well.  Visit our News page for more about the Senator and this award.

Upcoming Events


Welcome aboard!

Welcome to the Propeller Club's new website!  We are pleased to offer this first phase of our online overhaul, with information about ongoing Club activities and information about how you can find and become involved with a Propeller Club Port near you.

Here you can find information about this year's international activities, as well as upcoming events hosted by Propeller Club Ports around the world.  If your Port's events aren't listed, please contact us for instructions on how to submit that information.

Later this spring, we'll launch other exciting modules to the site, including an online database for local Club officials and an online community to exchange information with other Club members.  Ports are urged to submit their membership data as soon as possible to help us implement those functions.

Thank you for your interest in and support of the Propeller Club.
