United States Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 22-06
New York requires that anyone operating a personal watercraft complete an approved course in boating safety or otherwise be accompanied, on board, by someone 18 years of age or older who is the holder of an approved boating safety certificate. Certificates are required to be carried at all times when operating the personal watercraft. It is the certificate we issue upon successful completion of our Boating Safety class.
The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is the volunteer branch of the United States Coast Guard, established by Congress in 1939 to assist in promoting boating safety. Today, there are nearly 36,000 Auxiliary members.
Flotilla 22-06 is located in Port Jefferson, NY. We help patrol the Long Island Sound along with the other 6 flotillas in Division 22 and support our area US Coast Guard Station, Station Eatons Neck. Our meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at the Setauket Yacht Club on Surf Rd. in Port Jefferson Harbor. Doors open at 1900 hours (7:00pm); call to order is 1930 (7:30pm).
