The basic unit of the Auxiliary is the Flotilla.
Our Flotilla 75 meets on the 4th Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Tampa Sailing Squadron, 1250 Apollo Beach Blvd, Apollo Beach, Florida 33572
We are a service organization founded on the four cornerstones of the Auxiliary: Member Services, Recreational Boating Safety, Operation and Marine Safety, and Fellowship. We invite you to learn more about the Coast Guard Auxiliary and how to become a member. We are probably best known for the education programs we offer to the public through our U.S. Coast Guard approved safe boating programs and free vessel safety examinations. Learn more about these programs by clicking on the links to the left.
Our Flotilla supports USCG Station St. Petersburg by operating safety patrols and being an integral part of the Station and Sector St. Petersburg Coast Guard Search and Rescue Team. We also assist and augment active Coast Guard personnel by standing communications watches, assisting during mobilization exercises and performing harbor and security patrols.
We volunteer our time and we furnish and maintain our own equipment. We choose to participate and represent the U.S. Coast Guard - and have fun doing it.
We aren't paid with money, but we are paid with the thanks from boaters we have aided or instructed at one of our programs.
