To start off Fleet Week 2014 in NYC, 12 Auxiliary vessels and approximately 60 Auxiliarists provided on the water support for the Parade of Ships.  Regatta support included, but was not limited to the pick up, transport and drop off of 16 public affairs personnel from various news agencies and government organizations. Furthermore, the media relied extensively on USCG Auxiliary personnel and Auxiliary facilities from Sector New York to cover this event and report it to the public.
