Special Local Regulations for Marine Events, Patuxent River; Solomons, MD
The Coast Guard proposes to temporarily change the enforcement periods of special local regulations for a recurring marine event in the Fifth Coast Guard District. These regulations apply to the Chesapeake Challenge power boat race, a recurring marine event, and would be effective from October 4, 2014, to October 5, 2014. Special local regulations are necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the event. This action is intended to restrict vessel traffic in a portion of the Patuxent River at Solomons, MD during the event.

This action is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, safety vessels, and general users of the waterway. During the enforcement period, persons and vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring within this regulated area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or his designated representative.
Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Marine Events in Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone
The Coast Guard is establishing two special local regulations for two separate marine events and establishing three safety zones for two fireworks displays and one swim event within the Captain of the Port (COTP) Long Island Sound (LIS) Zone. This temporary final rule is necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during these events. Entry into, transit through, mooring or anchoring within these regulated areas and safety zones is prohibited unless authorized by COTP Sector Long Island Sound.
Vessel Documentation Renewal Fees
The Coast Guard is amending its regulations to separately list an annual fee for renewals of endorsements upon the Certificate of Documentation.
