SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for giving notice of the enforcement date less than 30 days before the enforcement period goes into effect. Delaying notice of the enforcement date would be contrary to the public interest, since immediate action is needed to ensure the safety of the event participants, support vessels, spectator craft and other vessels transiting the event area. However advance notification of this recurring event is being given to users of Sunset Lake via marine information broadcasts, local notice to mariners, commercial radio stations and area newspapers.

The Coast Guard will enforce the special local regulations for the annual Sunset Lake Hydrofest on Sunset Lake, New Jersey in 33 CFR 100.536 from 8:30 a.m. on September 29, 2007, through 5:30 p.m. September 30, 2007. Annually, the Sunset Lake Hydrofest Association sponsors this event on the waters of Sunset Lake near Wildwood Crest, New Jersey. The event consists of approximately 100 inboard hydroplanes, Jersey speed skiffs and flat-bottom ski boats racing in heats counter-clockwise around an oval racecourse.

Under the provisions of 33 CFR 100.536, except for event participants and persons or vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Patrol Commander, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the regulated area. Additionally, when authorized by the Patrol Commander to transit the regulated area, all vessels shall proceed at the minimum speed necessary to maintain a safe course that minimizes wake near the race course.

This notice is issued under authority of 33 CFR 100.536 and 5 U.S.C. 552(a). In addition to this notice in the Federal Register, the Coast Guard will provide the maritime community with extensive advance notification of this enforcement via the Local Notice to Mariners, marine information broadcasts, local radio stations and area newspapers.
