Coast Guard, DOT.
Notice of implementation.
The Coast Guard is implementing the special local regulations at 33 CFR 100.511 for the Eastport Yacht Club Lighted Boat Parade, a marine event to be held December 9, 2000, on the waters of Spa Creek and the Severn River at Annapolis, Maryland. These special local regulations are necessary to control vessel traffic due to the confined nature of the waterway and expected vessel congestion during the event. The effect will be to restrict general navigation in the regulated area for the safety of spectators and vessels transiting the event area.
33 CFR 100.511 is effective from 4:45 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. on December 9, 2000.Start Further Info

The Eastport Yacht Club will sponsor a lighted boat parade on the waters of the Severn River and Spa Creek at Annapolis, Maryland. The event will consist of approximately 50 vessels, ranging in length from 20 to 55 feet, traveling at slow speed along two separate parade routes in Annapolis Harbor. In order to ensure the safety of participants, spectators and transiting vessels, 33 CFR 100.511 will be in effect for the duration of the event. Under provisions of 33 CFR 100.511, vessels may not enter the regulated area without permission from the Coast Guard Patrol Commander. Spectator vessels may anchor outside the regulated area but may not block a navigable channel. Because these restrictions will only be in effect for a limited period, they should not result in a significant disruption of maritime traffic.Start Signature
