Special Local Regulation; Southern California Annual Marine Events for the San Diego Captain of the Port Zone
The Coast Guard will enforce the special local regulations in 33 CFR 100.1101 during the San Diego Parade of Lights, held on December 8, 2013 and December 15, 2013. This event occurs on the San Diego Bay in San Diego, CA. These special local regulations are necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, sponsor vessels of the parade, 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.
Safety Zone: Vessel Removal From the Oakland Estuary, Alameda, CA
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in the navigable waters of the Oakland Estuary just north of the Park Street Bridge in Alameda, CA in support of the Oakland Estuary Closure for the Vessel Removal Project on November 4, 2013 through November 22, 2013. This safety zone is established to ensure the safety of workers, mariners, and other vessels transiting the area from the dangers associated with cranes operating under heavy loads in close proximity to both sides of the Oakland Estuary. Unauthorized persons or vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or remaining in the safety zone without permission of the Captain of the Port or their designated representative.
Special Local Regulations; Eleventh Coast Guard District Annual Marine Events
The Coast Guard proposes to update the list of marine events that occur annually within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. These updates include adding specific marine events to the list of marine events held annually in the Eleventh Coast Guard District as well as removing marine events that no longer occur. In addition to updating the list of marine events held annually in the Eleventh Coast Guard District, the Coast Guard proposes to amend the special local regulations by standardizing the language and format of listed events. When these special local regulations are activated, and thus subject to enforcement, this proposed rule would restrict vessels from transiting inside the regulated area.
