Security Zone; 2011 Seattle Seafair Fleet Week Moving Vessels, Puget Sound, Washington
The U.S. Coast Guard is establishing temporary security zones around the HMCS WHITEHORSE (NCSM 705), HMCS NANAIMO (NCSM 702), and the USCGC MELLON (WHEC 717) which include all waters within 500 yards from these vessels while each vessel is participating in the Seafair Fleet Week Parade of Ships and while moored following the parade until departing on August 8, 2011. These security zones are necessary to help ensure the security of the vessels from sabotage or other subversive acts during Seafair Fleet Week Parade of Ships and will do so by prohibiting any person or vessel from entering or remaining in the security zones unless authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP), Puget Sound or Designated Representative.
