United States Coast Guard Auxiliary Hampstead
Your local U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is vital in providing boating safety and skills training to recreational boaters. With auxiliary flotillas located locally in Hampstead, Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Southport, Shallotte- Calabash, Grand Strand, and Georgetown you can take any available boating safety and skills training courses, request vessel safety checks, request boating safety information or have boating safety lectures provided to your local or civic group. On weekends and many week days during the boating season your local flotilla members can be seen on local waters assisting boaters in need of help. Also, membership in an auxiliary flotilla is open to U.S. citizens 17 years or older who wish to provide a valuable service to the boating public. You can have your vessel checked by an officer from your local U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. This check is provided free of charge and is intended to insure that your vessel has the necessary equipment required by law and for your personal safety. There is no penalty associated with having this check and any deficiencies will not be reported to enforcement authorities. Boat Smart...Boat Safe...Wear It! This message was brought to you by...
