Welcome Aboard!

Welcome to U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary's Division 10 D1NR. You will find information here about the activities in this Division that span its six member Flotillas. We hope that you consider joining one of our Flotillas to offer your time and service to help make boating safer for everyone.

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is comprised of over 30,000 volunteers dedicated to safer recreational boating on the coastal and inland waters of the United States. These volunteers undergo special training so that they are able to assist and augment the U.S. Coast Guard in its non-military, non-law enforcement programs such as free public vessel safety checks, public boating education, safety patrols, search and rescue, and aids to navigation patrols.

Division 10 is part of District 1 Northern Region (D1NR) with these six area Flotillas located in Central Massachusetts:

Flotilla 10-1, Worcester Flotilla 10-2, Tri-State Flotilla 10-3, North Central
Flotilla 10-7, Clinton Flotilla 10-10, Auburn  
(view map of all flotilla meeting places)

Each Flotilla welcomes new members and provides the necessary training which opens a world of opportunities to boating safety enthusiasts.
