U.S. Coast Guard: Special Local Regulation for Jones Beach Air Show - New York

NEW YORK - The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary special local regulation on the navigable waters for the Jones Beach Air Show, in Jones Beach, N.Y., from May 23rd through May 25, 2014.

The special local regulation establishes that the navigable waters between the Meadowbrook State Parkway and the Wantagh State Parkway as a “Slow or No Wake” area and restricts vessel movement to no wake speed.

The affected areas include the navigable waters of the Sloop Channel through East Bay, Zach’s Bay near Jones Beach State Park in Wantagh, N.Y., and the waters off of Jones Beach. Each area will be clearly marked with buoys and will be enforced by the Coast Guard, Coast Guard Auxiliary and local maritime law enforcement agencies.

The second measure establishes a regulated area that would restrict southbound traffic into and within Zach’s Bay from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., during each day of the Jones Beach Air Show.

In addition, this SLR establishes a “No Entry Area” in the waters off of Jones Beach, the area marked by the red box.

It is critical that spectators and boaters observe the boundaries of the SLR area established for the safety of air show participants, spectators and the general public during the event.

Persons, boaters or licensed mariners found in violation of a SLR may be subject to civil penalties, which comprise but are not limited to termination of voyage, suspension and revocation of license, and fines up to $5,000.

For more information regarding the SLR established for the Jones Beach Air Show, contact referred to Coast Guard Station Jones Beach at 516-785-2995.
