DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring Events in Captain of the Port Boston Zone Coast Guard, DHS. Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is amending special local regulations (SLR) and establishing permanent safety zones in the Coast Guard Sector Boston Captain of the Port (COTP) Zone for annually recurring marine events. The revised SLRs and safety zones are implemented to reduce administrative overhead, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 This rule is effective December 9, Comments and material received from the public, as well as documents mentioned in this preamble as being available in the docket, are part of docket USCG–2011–0109 and are available online by going to https:// www.regulations.gov, inserting USCG– 2011–0109 in the ‘‘Keyword’’ box, and then clicking ‘‘Search.’’ This material is also available for inspection or copying at the Docket Management Facility (M– 30), U.S. Department of Transportation, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\09NOR1.SGM 09NOR1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 217 / Wednesday, November 9, 2011 / Rules and Regulations and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with RULES Regulatory Information On June 28, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled: Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring Events in Captain of the Port Boston Zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 37690). We did not receive any comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for this rule is 33 U.S.C. 1226, 1231, 1233; 46 U.S.C. Chapter 454, 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory safety zones and SLRs. Marine events are annually held on a recurring basis on the navigable waters within the Coast Guard COTP Boston Zone. These events include fireworks displays, swim events, and other marine events. In the past, the Coast Guard has established SLRs, regulated navigation areas, and safety zones for these events individually to ensure the protection of the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with these marine events. Issuing individual regulations annually has proved to be administratively cumbersome. This rule will significantly relieve administrative overhead and consistently apprise the public in a timely manner through permanent publication in Title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The Tables in this regulation list each recurring marine event requiring a regulated area as administered by the Coast Guard. By establishing a permanent regulation containing these events, the Coast Guard will eliminate the need to establish temporary rules for events that occur on an annual basis. This limits the unnecessary burden of continually establishing temporary rules every year. This rulemaking amends, removes, and adds regulations that better meet VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:26 Nov 08, 2011 Jkt 226001 the Coast Guard’s intended purpose of ensuring safety during these events. The Coast Guard has also identified a number of events in 33 CFR part 100 which would be more appropriately located in 33 CFR part 165. This rule amends local regulations contained in 33 CFR part 100 to move firework displays to part 165, a citation that better meets the Coast Guard’s intended purpose of ensuring safety during these events. The Coast Guard has promulgated safety zones or SLRs for these areas in the past, and has not received public comments or concerns regarding the impact to waterway traffic from these annually recurring events. Background The Coast Guard is revising section 33 CFR 100.114, and adding sections 33 CFR 100.130, and 33 CFR 165.118. The changes remove nine outdated regulated areas and establish 43 new permanent regulated areas. The rule applies to each recurring marine event listed in the attached TABLES in the Coast Guard COTP Boston Zone. The TABLES provide the event name, sponsor, and type, as well as approximate dates and locations of the events. Notifications will be made to the local maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and/or Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of the events. If the event does not have a date listed, then exact dates and times of the enforcement period will be announced through a Notice of Enforcement in the Federal Register. The particular size of the safety zones established for each event will be reevaluated on an annual basis in accordance with Navigational and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 07– 02, Marine Safety at Firework Displays, the National Fire Protection Association Standard 1123, Code for Fireworks Displays (70-foot distance per inch of diameter of the fireworks mortars), and other pertinent regulations and publications. This regulation prevents persons and vessels from transiting areas specifically designated as SLRs or safety zones during the periods of enforcement to ensure the protection of the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with listed marine events. Only event sponsors, designated participants, and official patrol vessels will be allowed to enter safety zones and SLR areas. Spectators and other vessels not registered as event participants may not enter the regulated areas without the permission of the COTP or the designated representatives. PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 69623 All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the COTP Boston or the designated on-scene representative. Entering into, transiting through, mooring or anchoring within the regulated areas is prohibited unless authorized by the COTP Boston or the designated on scene representative. Discussion of Comments and Changes We did not receive any comments to the proposed rule. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders. Executive Order 12866 and Executive Order 13563 This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. The Coast Guard determined that this rule is not a significant regulatory action for the following reasons: vessels will only be restricted from safety zones and SLR areas for a short duration of time unless otherwise noted; vessels may transit in portions of the affected waterway except for those areas covered by the safety zones; the Coast Guard has promulgated safety zones or SLRs in accordance with 33 CFR parts 100 and 165 for all event areas in the past and has not received notice of any negative impact caused by any of the safety zones or SLRs. Reasonable notifications will also be made by Local Notice to Mariners (LNM) and Broadcast Notice to Mariners (BNM) well in advance of the events. The effect of this action simply establishes locations or the approximate dates on which the existing regulations would be enforced and consolidates them within one regulation. No new or additional restrictions would be imposed on vessel traffic. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently E:\FR\FM\09NOR1.SGM 09NOR1 69624 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 217 / Wednesday, November 9, 2011 / Rules and Regulations owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: owners or operators of vessels intending to transit, fish, or anchor in the areas where marine events are being held. For the reasons outlined above, this rule would not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), in the NPRM we offered to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency’s responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1– 888–REG–FAIR (1–(888) 734–3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with RULES Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:58 Nov 08, 2011 Jkt 226001 particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. Indian Tribal Governments Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraphs (34)(g) and (h), of the Instruction. This rule involves the establishment of safety zones and special local regulations in support of marine events. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. List of Subjects Energy Effects 33 CFR Part 100 We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Waterways.

Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, (202) 366– 9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Norfolk and Southern Railroad Corporation, who owns and operates the Neuse River Railroad Bridge, mile 34.2, at New Bern, NC, requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations to facilitate repairs to the main mechanism of the bridge. Under the regular operating schedule, the swing bridge opens on signal as required by 33 CFR 117.5. In the closed position to vessels, the bridge has no available vertical clearance. To facilitate repairs, the swing span will be closed to vessels requiring an opening from 9 a.m. on November 15, 2011 until and including 6 p.m. on November 17, 2011. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Neuse River. The majority of the vessels that transit through this bridge during this time of year are recreational with intermittent tug and barge traffic. The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with commercial and recreational waterway users. The Coast Guard will inform all users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notice to Mariners of the closure periods for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impacts caused by the temporary deviation. PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the draw must return to its original operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: October 27, 2011. Waverly W. Gregory, Jr., Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Regulatory Information

    On June 28, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled: Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring 
Events in Captain of the Port Boston Zone, in the Federal Register (76 
FR 37690). We did not receive any comments on the proposed rule. No 
public meeting was requested, and none was held.

Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for this rule is 33 U.S.C. 1226, 1231, 1233; 46 
U.S.C. Chapter 454, 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; Public Law 
107-295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation 
No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define 
regulatory safety zones and SLRs.
    Marine events are annually held on a recurring basis on the 
navigable waters within the Coast Guard COTP Boston Zone. These events 
include fireworks displays, swim events, and other marine events. In 
the past, the Coast Guard has established SLRs, regulated navigation 
areas, and safety zones for these events individually to ensure the 
protection of the maritime public and event participants from the 
hazards associated with these marine events. Issuing individual 
regulations annually has proved to be administratively cumbersome.
    This rule will significantly relieve administrative overhead and 
consistently apprise the public in a timely manner through permanent 
publication in Title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The Tables 
in this regulation list each recurring marine event requiring a 
regulated area as administered by the Coast Guard.
    By establishing a permanent regulation containing these events, the 
Coast Guard will eliminate the need to establish temporary rules for 
events that occur on an annual basis. This limits the unnecessary 
burden of continually establishing temporary rules every year.
    This rulemaking amends, removes, and adds regulations that better 
meet the Coast Guard's intended purpose of ensuring safety during these 
events.
    The Coast Guard has also identified a number of events in 33 CFR 
part 100 which would be more appropriately located in 33 CFR part 165. 
This rule amends local regulations contained in 33 CFR part 100 to move 
firework displays to part 165, a citation that better meets the Coast 
Guard's intended purpose of ensuring safety during these events.
    The Coast Guard has promulgated safety zones or SLRs for these 
areas in the past, and has not received public comments or concerns 
regarding the impact to waterway traffic from these annually recurring 
events.

Background

    The Coast Guard is revising section 33 CFR 100.114, and adding 
sections 33 CFR 100.130, and 33 CFR 165.118. The changes remove nine 
outdated regulated areas and establish 43 new permanent regulated 
areas. The rule applies to each recurring marine event listed in the 
attached TABLES in the Coast Guard COTP Boston Zone. The TABLES provide 
the event name, sponsor, and type, as well as approximate dates and 
locations of the events. Notifications will be made to the local 
maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and/or 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of the events. If the 
event does not have a date listed, then exact dates and times of the 
enforcement period will be announced through a Notice of Enforcement in 
the Federal Register.
    The particular size of the safety zones established for each event 
will be reevaluated on an annual basis in accordance with Navigational 
and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 07-02, Marine Safety at Firework 
Displays, the National Fire Protection Association Standard 1123, Code 
for Fireworks Displays (70-foot distance per inch of diameter of the 
fireworks mortars), and other pertinent regulations and publications.
    This regulation prevents persons and vessels from transiting areas 
specifically designated as SLRs or safety zones during the periods of 
enforcement to ensure the protection of the maritime public and event 
participants from the hazards associated with listed marine events. 
Only event sponsors, designated participants, and official patrol 
vessels will be allowed to enter safety zones and SLR areas. Spectators 
and other vessels not registered as event participants may not enter 
the regulated areas without the permission of the COTP or the 
designated representatives.
    All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the 
COTP Boston or the designated on-scene representative. Entering into, 
transiting through, mooring or anchoring within the regulated areas is 
prohibited unless authorized by the COTP Boston or the designated on 
scene representative.

Discussion of Comments and Changes

    We did not receive any comments to the proposed rule.

Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders.

Executive Order 12866 and Executive Order 13563

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) 
of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, as 
supplemented by Executive Order 13563, and does not require an 
assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of 
that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it 
under that Order.
    The Coast Guard determined that this rule is not a significant 
regulatory action for the following reasons: vessels will only be 
restricted from safety zones and SLR areas for a short duration of time 
unless otherwise noted; vessels may transit in portions of the affected 
waterway except for those areas covered by the safety zones; the Coast 
Guard has promulgated safety zones or SLRs in accordance with 33 CFR 
parts 100 and 165 for all event areas in the past and has not received 
notice of any negative impact caused by any of the safety zones or 
SLRs. Reasonable notifications will also be made by Local Notice to 
Mariners (LNM) and Broadcast Notice to Mariners (BNM) well in advance 
of the events.
    The effect of this action simply establishes locations or the 
approximate dates on which the existing regulations would be enforced 
and consolidates them within one regulation. No new or additional 
restrictions would be imposed on vessel traffic.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. The term ``small entities'' 
comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are 
independently

[[Page 69624]]

owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and 
governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000.
    The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which 
may be small entities: owners or operators of vessels intending to 
transit, fish, or anchor in the areas where marine events are being 
held. For the reasons outlined above, this rule would not have a 
significant impact on a substantial number of small entities.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), in the NPRM we offered to 
assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can 
better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking.
    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal 
employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal 
regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory 
Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory 
Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and 
rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to 
comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR 
(1-(888) 734-3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small 
entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or 
action of the Coast Guard.

Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under 
that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for 
federalism.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in 
such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in 
this preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule 
is not an economically significant rule and does not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may 
disproportionately affect children.

Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects 
under Executive Order 13211.

Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards 
in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, 
through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why 
using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical 
standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or 
operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management 
systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus 
standards bodies.
    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded 
that this action is one of a category of actions that do not 
individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human 
environment. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, 
paragraphs (34)(g) and (h), of the Instruction. This rule involves the 
establishment of safety zones and special local regulations in support 
of marine events. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical 
exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated 
under ADDRESSES.

Sec.  100.130  Special Local Regulations; Recurring Annual Marine 
Events in Sector Boston Captain of the Port Zone

    This section applies to the marine events listed in Table 1 of this 
section. The regulations in this section will be enforced for the 
duration of each event, on or about the dates indicated in Table 1 of 
this section. Annual notice of the exact dates and times of the 
effective period of the regulations in this section with respect to 
each event, the geographical description of each regulated area, and 
details concerning the nature of the event and the number of 
participants and type(s) of vessels involved will be provided to the 
local maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and/or 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of the events. If the 
event does not have a date listed, then the exact dates and times of 
the enforcement will be announced through a Notice of Enforcement in 
the Federal Register. Mariners should consult the Federal Register or 
their LNM to remain apprised of minor schedule or event changes. First 
Coast Guard District LNM can be found at: https://www.navcen.uscg.gov/. 
The Sector Boston Marine Events schedule can also be viewed 
electronically at https://www.homeport.uscg.mil. Although listed in the 
Code of Federal Regulations, sponsors of events listed in Table 1 of 
this section are still required to submit a marine event permit 
application in accordance with 33 CFR 100.15.
    (a) The Coast Guard may patrol each event area under the direction 
of a designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander (PATCOM). PATCOM may be 
contacted on Channel 16 VHF-FM (156.8 MHz) by the call sign ``PATCOM.'' 
Official patrol vessels may consist of any Coast Guard, Coast Guard 
Auxiliary, state, or local law enforcement vessels assigned or approved 
by the Captain of the Port, Sector Boston.
    (b) Vessels may not transit the regulated areas without PATCOM 
approval. Vessels permitted to transit must operate at a no wake speed, 
in a manner which will not endanger participants or other crafts in the 
event.
    (c) Spectators or other vessels shall not anchor, block, loiter, or 
impede the transit of event participants or official patrol vessels in 
the regulated areas during the effective dates and times, or dates and 
times as modified through LNM, unless authorized by an official patrol 
vessel.
    (d) PATCOM may control the movement of all vessels in the regulated 
area. When hailed or signaled by an official patrol vessel, a vessel 
shall come to an immediate stop and comply with the lawful directions 
issued. Failure to comply with a lawful direction may result in 
expulsion from the area, citation for failure to comply, or both.
    (e) PATCOM may delay or terminate any marine event in this subpart 
at any time it is deemed necessary to ensure the safety of life or 
property. Such action may be justified as a result of weather, traffic 
density, spectator operation or participant behavior.
    (f) For all power boat races listed, vessels operating within the 
regulated area must be at anchor within a designated spectator area or 
moored to a waterfront facility in a way that will not interfere with 
the progress of the event.
    (g) For all regattas, boat parades, and rowing and paddling boat 
races, vessels not associated with the event shall maintain a 
separation of at least 50 yards from the participants.

Sec.  165.118  Safety Zones; Recurring Annual Events held in Coast 
Guard Sector Boston Captain of the Port Zone.

    The Coast Guard is establishing safety zones for the events listed 
in Table 1 of this section. These regulations in this section will be 
enforced for the duration of each event, on or about the dates 
indicated in Table 1 of this section. Annual notice of the exact dates 
and times of the effective period of the regulations in this section 
with respect to each event, the geographical description of each 
regulated area, and details concerning the nature of the event and the 
number of participants and type(s) of vessels involved will be made to 
the local maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and/
or Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of the events. If the 
event does not have a date listed, then the exact dates and times of 
the enforcement will be announced through a Notice of Enforcement in 
the Federal Register. Mariners should consult the Federal Register or 
their LNM to remain apprised of minor schedule or event changes. First 
Coast Guard District LNM can be found at: https://www.navcen.uscg.gov/. 
The Sector Boston Marine Events schedule can also be viewed 
electronically at: https://www.homeport.uscg.mil. Although listed in the 
Code of Federal Regulations, sponsors of events listed in Table 1 of 
this section are still required to submit a marine event permit 
application each year in accordance with 33 CFR 100.15.
    (a) The Coast Guard may patrol each event area under the direction 
of a designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander. The Patrol Commander may
