Safety Zones; Annual Events Requiring Safety Zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone
The Coast Guard proposes to establish regulations requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone. This proposed rule is intended to establish safety zones that will restrict vessels from certain portions of water areas within the Sector Sault Ste Marie Captain of the Port zone, as defined by our regulations. These proposed safety zones are necessary to protect spectators, participants, and vessels from the hazards associated with various maritime events.
