Safety Zones; 9-11 Patriot Festival, Charleston Harbor, Charleston, SC
The Coast Guard proposes to establish safety zone on the Charleston Harbor in Charleston, South Carolina during the International Outboard Grand Prix (IOGP) 9-11 Patriot Festival, a series of high-speed boat races. The event is scheduled to take place on Friday September 12 through Sunday September 14, 2014. Approximately 25 high-speed race boats are anticipated to participate in the races. This safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of life and property on navigable waters of the United States during the event. This safety zone would temporarily restrict vessel traffic in a portion of Charleston Harbor. Persons and vessels that are not participating in the races would be prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within the restricted area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Charleston or a designated representative.
