Tidbit for New England

Hi Folks,

These tidbits are for those of you who may be sailing in the NE area and don’t subscribe to the District 1 USCG Notice to Mariners. Be aware that there will be considerable marine survey activity along the coasts of Buzzards Bay, MA; New Hampshire; Penobscot Bay and the coast of Maine over the summer months. The Notice to Mariners has the complete schedule, which is too extensive to include here, so I highly suggest that you go to the USCG site, USCG District One Local Notice to Mariners (16-2013), and look it over for more detailed information.


There is also an extensive list of bridge construction on going all along the coast, in the vicinity of which the Coast Guard has set up regulated navigation areas (RNAs), which change the speed limits and establish no wake zones. You may want to check it out to see if it may pose a danger in your area.
