The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 22 announced that it graduated 15 students from the Auxiliary’s first boating class of 2020.
Students learned basic boating terms, types of boats, rules of the road and navigation. If residents were born after Jan. 1, 1998, they are required by law to take a boating safety class in order to operate a motor vessel in the State of Georgia.
The Auxiliary is offering classes every month thru September.
The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed volunteer component of The U.S. Coast Guard created by an act of Congress in 1939. Now under The Department of Homeland Security, The Auxiliary supports The Coast Guard in nearly all of the service’s missions.
