Welcome to the Flotilla 5-10, District 1SR Web Site


America's Boating Safety (ABS) Course 
Courses are being offered monthly at the Hudson River Park Trust. 
This boat safety course is designed to be an introductory course to meet the boating education needs of recreational boaters. This class fulfills the New York requirements for mandatory boater education for those born on or after May 1, 1996, and is a great class for new boaters and a good refresher for all boaters. 
See the event calendar for details.

Vessel Safety Checks

We encourage all boaters to plan on having a Vessel Safety Check this year to assure you are ready to operate safely during the season. The safety Checks are a free service offered by our Flotilla at various venues around New York Harbor.
