Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the proposed rule is 33 U.S.C. 1226, 1231, 1233; 46 U.S.C. chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 1.05–1, and 160.5; 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 special local regulations. PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 80851 Swim events, fireworks displays, and marine events are held on an annual recurring basis on the navigable waters within the Coast Guard COTP Northern New England Zone. In the past, the Coast Guard has established special local regulations, regulated areas and safety zones for these annual recurring events on a case by case basis to ensure the protection of the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with these events. The Coast Guard has not received public comments or concerns regarding the impact to waterway traffic from these annually recurring events. This proposed rule will consistently apprise the public in a timely manner through permanent publication in Title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The TABLES in this proposed regulation list each annual recurring event requiring a regulated area as administered by the Coast Guard. By establishing permanent regulations containing these events, the Coast Guard would eliminate the need to establish temporary rules for events that occur on an annual basis and thereby limit the costs associated with cumulative regulations. This rulemaking will remove, add, and consolidate regulations to better meet the Coast Guard’s intended purpose of ensuring safety during these events. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.120 (Special Local Regulations) and 33 CFR 165.171 (Safety Zones). The proposed rule would apply to the annual recurring events listed in the attached TABLES in the Coast Guard COTP Northern New England Zone. The TABLES provide the event name, sponsor, and type, as well as approximate dates and locations of the events. The specific times, dates, regulated areas, and enforcement period for each event will be provided through the Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners or through a Notice of Enforcement published 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 (100-foot distance per inch of diameter of the fireworks mortars), and other pertinent regulations and publications. E:\FR\FM\27DEP1.SGM 27DEP1 80852 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 248 / Tuesday, December 27, 2011 / Proposed Rules This proposed regulation would prevent vessels from transiting areas specifically designated as special local regulations or safety zones during the periods of enforcement to ensure the protection of the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with the listed annual recurring events. Only event sponsors, designated participants, and official patrol vessels will be allowed to enter regulated 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 representative. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed 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. Regulatory Evaluation This proposed 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. We expect the economic impact of this proposed rule to be minimal. Although this regulation may have some impact on the public, the potential impact will be minimized for the following reasons: The Coast Guard has previously promulgated safety zones or special local regulations in accordance with 33 CFR Parts 100 and 165 for approximately 85% of the event areas contained within this proposed regulation and has not received notice of any negative impact caused by any of the safety zones or special local regulations. By establishing a permanent regulation containing all of these events, the Coast Guard will eliminate the need to establish individual temporary rules for each separate event that occurs on an annual basis, thereby limiting the cost of cumulative regulations. Vessels will only be restricted from safety zones and special local regulation areas for a short duration of time. Vessels may transit in portions of the affected waterway except for those areas covered by the proposed regulated areas. Notifications will also be made to the local maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of the events. If the event does not have a date listed, then the exact VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:47 Dec 23, 2011 Jkt 226001 dates and times of the enforcement period will be announced through a Notice of Enforcement in the Federal Register. No new or additional restrictions will be imposed on vessel traffic. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this proposed 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 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 proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This proposed rule would affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: owners or operators of vessels intending to transit, fish, or anchor in the areas where the listed annual recurring events are being held. The proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: vessels will only be restricted from safety zones and special local regulation areas for a short duration of time; vessels may transit in portions of the affected waterway except for those areas covered by the proposed regulated areas; the Coast Guard has promulgated safety zones or special local regulations in accordance with 33 CFR Parts 100 and 165 for approximately 85% of the event areas in the past and has not received notice of any negative impact caused by any of the safety zones or special local regulations; and notifications will be made to the local maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and 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. No new or additional restrictions would be imposed on vessel traffic. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this proposed rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. Collection of Information This proposed rule would call 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 proposed 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 proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This proposed rule would 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 proposed rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, E:\FR\FM\27DEP1.SGM 27DEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 248 / Tuesday, December 27, 2011 / Proposed Rules Environment eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. Protection of Children We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children. Indian Tribal Governments This proposed rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it would 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Energy Effects We have analyzed this proposed 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 proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:47 Dec 23, 2011 Jkt 226001 We have analyzed this proposed 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 made a preliminary determination that this action appears to be one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination will be available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. This proposed rule involves water activities including swimming events and fireworks displays. This rule appears to be categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(g) [Safety Zones] and (34)(h) [Special Local Regulations] of the Instruction. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule.

The Sector Northern New England Marine Events schedule can also be viewed electronically at www.homeport.uscg.mil. Although listed in the Code of Federal Regulations, sponsors of events listed in the Table to § 100.120 are still required to submit marine event applications 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 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 Northern New England. (b) Vessels may not transit the regulated areas without the Patrol Commander’s approval. Vessels permitted to transit must operate at a no wake speed and 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, unless authorized by an official patrol vessel. (d) The Patrol Commander 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) The Patrol Commander 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.

[Docket No. USCG-2011-1023]
RIN 1625-AA08; 1625-AA00


Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring Events in 
Northern New England

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard proposes to update recurring special local 
regulations and safety zones in the Coast Guard Captain of the Port 
(COTP) Northern New England Zone for annual recurring marine events. 
When these special local regulations or safety zones are subject to 
enforcement, this rule would restrict vessels from portions of water 
areas during these annual recurring events. The revised special local 
regulations and safety zones would expedite public notification of 
events, and ensure the protection of the maritime public and event 
participants from the hazards associated with these annual recurring 
events.

Guard on or before February 27, 2012. Requests for public meetings must 
be received by the Coast Guard on or before January 17, 2012.

of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively 
authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory safety zones and special 
local regulations.
    Swim events, fireworks displays, and marine events are held on an 
annual recurring basis on the navigable waters within the Coast Guard 
COTP Northern New England Zone. In the past, the Coast Guard has 
established special local regulations, regulated areas and safety zones 
for these annual recurring events on a case by case basis to ensure the 
protection of the maritime public and event participants from the 
hazards associated with these events. The Coast Guard has not received 
public comments or concerns regarding the impact to waterway traffic 
from these annually recurring events.
    This proposed rule will consistently apprise the public in a timely 
manner through permanent publication in Title 33 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations. The TABLES in this proposed regulation list each annual 
recurring event requiring a regulated area as administered by the Coast 
Guard.
    By establishing permanent regulations containing these events, the 
Coast Guard would eliminate the need to establish temporary rules for 
events that occur on an annual basis and thereby limit the costs 
associated with cumulative regulations.
    This rulemaking will remove, add, and consolidate regulations to 
better meet the Coast Guard's intended purpose of ensuring safety 
during these events.

Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.120 (Special Local 
Regulations) and 33 CFR 165.171 (Safety Zones).
    The proposed rule would apply to the annual recurring events listed 
in the attached TABLES in the Coast Guard COTP Northern New England 
Zone. The TABLES provide the event name, sponsor, and type, as well as 
approximate dates and locations of the events. The specific times, 
dates, regulated areas, and enforcement period for each event will be 
provided through the Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to 
Mariners or through a Notice of Enforcement published 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 (100-foot distance per inch of diameter of the 
fireworks mortars), and other pertinent regulations and publications.

[[Page 80852]]

    This proposed regulation would prevent vessels from transiting 
areas specifically designated as special local regulations or safety 
zones during the periods of enforcement to ensure the protection of the 
maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with 
the listed annual recurring events. Only event sponsors, designated 
participants, and official patrol vessels will be allowed to enter 
regulated 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 representative.

Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed 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.

Regulatory Evaluation

    This proposed 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.
    We expect the economic impact of this proposed rule to be minimal. 
Although this regulation may have some impact on the public, the 
potential impact will be minimized for the following reasons: The Coast 
Guard has previously promulgated safety zones or special local 
regulations in accordance with 33 CFR Parts 100 and 165 for 
approximately 85% of the event areas contained within this proposed 
regulation and has not received notice of any negative impact caused by 
any of the safety zones or special local regulations. By establishing a 
permanent regulation containing all of these events, the Coast Guard 
will eliminate the need to establish individual temporary rules for 
each separate event that occurs on an annual basis, thereby limiting 
the cost of cumulative regulations.
    Vessels will only be restricted from safety zones and special local 
regulation areas for a short duration of time. Vessels may transit in 
portions of the affected waterway except for those areas covered by the 
proposed regulated areas. Notifications will also be made to the local 
maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and 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 
period will be announced through a Notice of Enforcement in the Federal 
Register. No new or additional restrictions will be imposed on vessel 
traffic.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this proposed 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 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 proposed 
rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities. This proposed rule would affect the following 
entities, some of which might be small entities: owners or operators of 
vessels intending to transit, fish, or anchor in the areas where the 
listed annual recurring events are being held.
    The proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: vessels 
will only be restricted from safety zones and special local regulation 
areas for a short duration of time; vessels may transit in portions of 
the affected waterway except for those areas covered by the proposed 
regulated areas; the Coast Guard has promulgated safety zones or 
special local regulations in accordance with 33 CFR Parts 100 and 165 
for approximately 85% of the event areas in the past and has not 
received notice of any negative impact caused by any of the safety 
zones or special local regulations; and notifications will be made to 
the local maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and 
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. No new or additional restrictions would be 
imposed on vessel traffic.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this proposed rule so that they can better 
evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the 
rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please contact the person listed under FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against 
small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or 
any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

Collection of Information

    This proposed rule would call 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 proposed 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 proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule 
elsewhere in this preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This proposed rule would 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 proposed rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 
3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize 
litigation,

[[Page 80853]]

eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

Protection of Children

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

Indian Tribal Governments

    This proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments, because it would 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 proposed 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 proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we 
did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed 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 made a preliminary determination that this action appears to be 
one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively 
have a significant effect on the human environment.
    A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this 
determination will be available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES. This proposed rule involves water activities including 
swimming events and fireworks displays. This rule appears to be 
categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(g) [Safety 
Zones] and (34)(h) [Special Local Regulations] of the Instruction.
    We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery 
of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule.

List of Subjects

33 CFR Part 100

    Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and record-keeping 
requirements, Waterways.

33 CFR Part 165

    Harbors, Marine Safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and 
recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, and Waterways.

    For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard proposes 
to amend 33 CFR parts 100 and 165 as follows:

PART 100--SAFETY OF LIFE ON NAVIGABLE WATERS

    1. The authority citation for Part 100 continues to read as 
follows:

    Authority:  33 U.S.C. 1233.
    2. Revise Sec.  100.120 as follows:


Sec.  100.120  Special local regulations; marine events held in the 
Coast Guard Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port Zone.

    This section applies to the marine events listed in its table 
(Table to Sec.  100.120). This section will be enforced for the 
duration of each event, on the dates indicated. Mariners should consult 
their Local Notice to Mariners to remain apprised of the specific 
calendar date upon which the listed event falls for each calendar year 
and other specific information concerning the event. First Coast Guard 
District Local Notice to Mariners can be found at: http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/. The Sector Northern New England Marine Events 
schedule can also be viewed electronically at www.homeport.uscg.mil. 
Although listed in the Code of Federal Regulations, sponsors of events 
listed in the Table to Sec.  100.120 are still required to submit 
marine event applications 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 
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 Northern New England.
    (b) Vessels may not transit the regulated areas without the Patrol 
Commander's approval. Vessels permitted to transit must operate at a no 
wake speed and 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, unless 
authorized by an official patrol vessel.
    (d) The Patrol Commander 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) The Patrol Commander 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.
    (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 and boat parades listed, spectator vessels 
operating within the regulated area shall maintain a separation of at 
least 50 yards from the participants.
    (h) For all rowing and paddling boat races listed, vessels not 
associated with

[[Page 80854]]

the event shall maintain a separation of at least 50 yards from the 
participants.
