Welcome to the Flotilla 7-5, District 8CR Web Site

Welcome to the home page of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, District Eight, Coastal Region Flotilla 07-04 based in Ausin, Texas. 

We are an inland flotilla with eleven Central Texas lakes in its coverage area, of which include: Lady Bird Lake; Lake Austin; Lake Travis; Lake Marble Falls; Lake LBJ; Inks Lake; Lake Buchanan; Lake Georgetown; Granger Lake;  Walter E. Long Lake (also known as Decker Lake); and Lake Bastrop.  To see the area we serve, click here.

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed, all-volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard. The Auxiliary was created by an Act of Congress in 1939, and has grown to over 34,000 members who daily support the Coast Guard nationwide in all its missions, except combat and direct law enforcement.

Auxiliarists conduct safety patrols on local waterways, assist in Search and Rescue, teach boating safety classes, conduct free vessel safety checks for the public, provide boating safety literature to dealers, as well as many other activities related to recreational boating safety.

The Coast Guard considers the Auxiliary its primary resource for recreational boating safety outreach and prevention (see the message "From the Commandant"), and each Coast Guard District around the nation has established a senior officer and staff to provide coordination between the active-duty Coast Guard and the various Auxiliary units in that District.

In many inland portions of the country, where the majority of U.S. recreational boating occurs on lakes and rivers, the Auxiliary is the sole Coast Guard presence (as is the case here in Austin)!

If you're interested in attending a meeting or joining contact the Flotilla Commander or Flotilla Staff Officer - Human Resources.  Their contact information can be found on the "About Flotilla 7-5" page.
