Join the Auxiliary

Make a Difference — You Might Save a Life!

Membership is open to U.S. citizens, at least 17 years old, who want to actively promote Recreational Boating Safety. We are a congressionally chartered national organization with numerous opportunities for public service, as well as personal and leadership development. Our connection to the United States Coast Guard provides other benefits to our members that we will be happy to explain. A background check is required.

Flotilla 2-5 needs new members who want to participate in water safety activities and support of those programs. Some of these are:

  • Lake safety patrols. We need boat owners who would like to perform safety patrols of Lake Hartwell and Lake Keowee.
  • Navigation Systems.
  • Vessel Safety checks.
  • Marine Safety.
  • Instructors for our boating safety classes.

We have many more opportunities for motivated volunteers who want to make a positive impact on safe boating on our lakes.

We have staff officer and operational opportunities for people with various specialty skills, but we also train and mentor those who want to learn! All you need is a willingness to work and learn, plus some free time. Learn more about the Auxiliary, what you can do, and the benefits of being a member on our national web site.
