Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-07-19
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to establish special local regulations on the waters of Ponce Harbor in Ponce, Puerto Rico during the Cruce a Nado Internacional, a swimming event. The event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, September 2, 2012. Approximately 85 swimmers are anticipated to participate in the swimming event, and there are not expected to be any spectator vessels present during the event. These special local regulations are necessary to provide for the safety of life on the navigable waters of the United States during the event. These special local regulations would establish a swim area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons participating in the race and vessels patrolling the swim area, will be prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within unless authorized by the Captain of the Port San Juan or a designated representative.
