Coast Guard cutters and small boats are enforcing safety and security zones during the Parade of Ships and for the Blue Angel air show Oct. 7-10, providing law enforcement support and standing by to assist boaters in case of emergency. This special local regulation will be announced through a broadcast notice to mariners as well as being published in the Federal Register. Vessel traffic will be restricted throughout most of the Central Bay from the Golden Gate Bridge, south of Alcatraz, to just south of the Bay Bridge. This is to accommodate the Parade of Ships, as vessels pass under the Golden Gate Bridge to their assigned moorings in San Francisco. No vessel will be permitted to cross the parade line or interfere with the safe transit of the parade participants in any way. A 500-yard protective zone will also be enforced around each naval vessel the entire time they are in the port.
