The Coast Guard will enforce a special local regulation for the Wheeling Vintage Raceboat Regatta on the Ohio River, from mile 90.2 to 90.8, extending the entire width of the river. This zone will be in effect on August 30-31, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. This regulated area is necessary to protect vessels participating in the event and event spectators from the hazards associated with a boat race on the waterway. During the enforcement period, entry into, transiting, or anchoring in the safety zone is prohibited to all vessels not registered with the sponsor as participants or official patrol vessels, unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Pittsburgh or a designated representative.
