U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Selects Flotilla 59, Stuart, as National Flotilla of the Year!


By: Hank Cushard / District 7 Auxiliary Public Affairs

STUART- U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 59, Stuart, has been selected as the National Flotilla of the Year (FOTY). This award annually recognizes the most exemplary auxiliary flotilla in the nation. With over 800 flotillas in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, and the US Virgin Islands, this is truly an honor for the 55 plus members of Flotilla 59. The award embodies the spirit of the U.S. Coast Guard’s uniformed volunteer component for its service and support to the local community and in particular the Treasure Coast.

In promoting and improving Recreational Boating Safety, offering virtual public education, vessel safety exams, and community outreach, in times of a pandemic did not go unnoticed by the National Auxiliary. These significant accomplishments in addition to providing a diverse array of specialized skills and trained crews, for the U.S. Coast Guard’s many missions on the water and in the air were also seen as even more reasons to present this award to Flotilla 59.

Since 1942, their members once patrolled the beaches of Hutchinson Island looking for enemy submarines, the USCG Auxiliary Flotilla 59, has been offering safe boating courses and recreational boating support ever since.

U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 59, Stuart, is located at 3443 SE St. Lucie Boulevard in Sandsprit Park and has been serving the Treasure Coast for over 80 years.

They are always looking for shipmates. If you are interested in exploring a role with this dedicated group of volunteers, check out their website, www.cgaux59.org or e-mail flotilla59@gmail.com or call 772-288-0509.

Semper Paratus!
