ACTION: Notification of enforcement of regulation.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard will enforce Seattle's Seafair Fleet Week 
Moving Vessels security zones from 11:30 a.m. on August 1, 2022, 
through 5 p.m. on August 7, 2022. These security zones are necessary to 
help ensure the security of the vessels from sabotage or other 
subversive acts during Seafair Fleet Week Parade of Ships. The 
designated participating vessels are: USS LAKE CHAMPLAIN (CG-57), USS 
JOHN PAUL JONES (DDG-53), USCGC HENRY BLAKE (WLM-563), USCGC ANACAPA

SASKATOON (MM-709), HMCS YELLOWKNIFE (MM-706), and Fireboat LESCHI. 
During the enforcement period, no person or vessel may enter or remain 
in the security zones without the permission of the Captain of the Port 
(COTP), Puget Sound or her designated representative. The COTP has 
granted general permission for vessels to enter the outer 400 yards of 
the security zones as long as those vessels within the outer 400 yards 
of the security zones operate at the minimum speed necessary to 
maintain course unless required to maintain speed by the navigation 
rules.

DATES: The regulations in 33 CFR 165.1333 will be enforced without 
actual notice from August 5, 2022 through 5 p.m. on August 7, 2022, 
unless cancelled sooner by the Captain of the Port Puget Sound or her 
designated representative. For the purposes of enforcement, actual 
notice will be used from 11:30 a.m. August 1, 2022, until August 5, 
2022.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions about this 
notification of enforcement, call or email Chief Warrant Officer 
William Martinez, Sector Puget Sound Waterways Management Division, 
U.S. Coast Guard; telephone 206-217-6051, email

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Coast Guard will enforce the security 
zones for Seattle's Seafair Fleet Week Moving Vessels in 33 CFR 
165.1333 from 11:30 a.m. on August 1, 2022, through 5 p.m. on August 7, 
2022.
    In accordance with the general regulations in 33 CFR part 165, 
subpart D, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the security 
zones without the permission of the Captain of the Port, Puget Sound or 
her designated representative. For 2022, the following areas are Sec.  
165.1333 security zones: all navigable waters within 500 yards of USS 
LAKE CHAMPLAIN (CG-57), USS JOHN PAUL JONES (DDG-53), USCGC HENRY BLAKE 
(WLM-563), USCGC ANACAPA (WPB-1335), USCGC TERRAPIN (WPB-87366), USCGC 
OSPREY (WPB-87307), HMCS SASKATOON (MM-709), HMCS YELLOWKNIFE (MM-706), 
and Fireboat LESCHI, while each such vessel is in the Sector Puget 
Sound COTP Zone.
    The COTP has granted general permission for vessels to enter the 
outer 400 yards of the security zones as long as those vessels within 
the outer 400 yards of the security zones operate at the minimum speed 
necessary to maintain course unless required to maintain speed by the 
navigation rules. The COTP may be assisted by other federal, state or 
local agencies with the enforcement of the security zones.
    All vessel operators who desire to enter the inner 100 yards of the 
security zones or transit the outer 400 yards at greater than minimum 
speed necessary to maintain course must obtain permission from the COTP 
or her designated representative by contacting the on-scene patrol 
craft on VHF Ch 13 or Ch 16. Requests must include the reason why 
movement within this area is necessary. Vessel operators granted 
permission to enter the security zones will be escorted by the on-scene 
patrol craft until they are outside of the security zones.
    In addition to this notice of enforcement, the Coast Guard will 
provide the maritime community with notification of the security zones 
via the Local Notice to Mariners and marine information broadcasts on 
the day of the event. In the event that there are changes to the 
participating vessels, due to operational requirements, the Coast Guard 
will provide actual notice for any additional designated participating 
vessels not covered in this document.
    Members of the public may contact Sector Puget Sound COTP at 206-
217-6002 for an up-to-date list of designated participating vessels. If 
the COTP determines that the security zones need not be enforced for 
the full duration stated in this notice of enforcement, a Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners may be used to grant general permission to enter all 
portions of the regulated areas.

    Dated: July 29, 2022.

Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Captain of the Port, Sector Puget Sound.
