    As we have discussed before, we are on the outskirts of the area of operation for Station Panama City. When problems arise that the Auxiliary can assist with, we are often called upon to help.
    This past week, there was concern that one of the Aides to Navigation was out of place in the St. Marks Channel. This can happen for a number of reasons, but even a slight error can be problematic for local boaters and commercial vessels.
    Thank you to Bob Asztalos for the report!

    This week kicks off the National Safe Bating month! Events nationwide will be focused at the end of the month, closer to Memorial Day. However, Flotilla 12 wants to spend the entire month focusing on important aspects of safe boating.
    The following are safe boating tips from the National Safe Boating Council.
    • When you’re preparing for a day on the water, always cover the basics.
    • Arm yourself with swimming and boating skills: enroll in a swim course and boating course in your area.

  • Coast Guard Auxliary – April 18, 2019

    May 18-24 is National Safe Boating Week.  While we strive to promote safe boating year round, this is a week for heightened awareness.
    Boating is not just about motorboats, it is also kayakzing, canoeing, paddle boarding and other water sports such as kite boarding and wind surfing.
    The Safe Boating Campaign indicated that more paddlers are hitting the waterways as temperatures warm up.

    Thank you to Bob AsThis past weekend, members of Flotilla 12 participated in Springtime Tallahassee. This annual event is an opportunity for us to meet and talk to boaters in the area and those who may be interested in boating. Members will have information on boating regulations, safety and a few surprises for children, and those young at heart. This event bring people from all over the area to Tallahassee, helping us provide information to a very wide audience! We look forward to participating every year. Thank you to Tim Ashley for the images.

    Thank you to Bob Asztalos for the following article and image.
    On Saturday, Coxswain Bob Asztalos, crewmember Phil Hill and trainees Terry Hoxworth and Dave Fansler conducted the first patrol of the year in the Shell Point area. The first time putting a facility in the water, after sitting all winter, is always a tense patrol. And with boats being boats, our facility gave us those normal problems boaters in the same situation face.
