Atlantic Ocean, Miami Beach, FL
Notice Number: 2022-06251
Date: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before April 8, 2022.
Notice of proposed rulemaking.
The Coast Guard is proposing to establish a special local regulation (SLR) on certain navigable waters of the Atlantic Ocean, offshore of Miami Beach, FL, in connection with the Luminsea Offshore Powerboat Race. The race will include approximately 55 offshore powerboats, ranging from 30 to 50 feet in length. The SLR is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards associated with the high-speed powerboat race. The special local regulation establishes a race area where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels who are participating in the race, will be prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within unless authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Miami or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG-2022-0135 using the Federal Decision Making Portal at https://www.regulations.gov. See the “Public Participation and Request for Comments” portion of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for further instructions on submitting comments.
If you have questions on this proposed rule, call or email Omar Beceiro, Sector Miami Waterways Management Division, U.S. Coast Guard at 305-535-4317 or Omar.Beceiro@uscg.mil.
