The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation to restrict vessel movement in designated permanent hydroplane race areas in Dyes Inlet, Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish, WA during permitted hydroplane race events. When this special local regulation is activated, and thus subject to enforcement, this rule will limit the movement of non-participating vessels within the regulated race areas immediately prior to, during and immediately following the conclusion of permitted hydroplane marine events. This rule is needed to provide effective control over these events while ensuring the safety of the maritime public.
