NEW YORK – The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary Special Local Regulation (SLR) on the navigable waters for the Jones Beach Air Show, in Jones Beach, New York, from Thursday through Sunday.
The special local regulation establishes 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, New York, and the waters off of Jones Beach. Each area will be clearly marked with buoys and will be enforced by the Coast Guard crews, Coast Guard Auxiliary crews and local maritime law enforcement officials.
The second measure establishes a regulated area that will restrict southbound traffic into and within Zach’s Bay from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., during each day of the Jones Beach Air Show.
This SLR also establishes a “No Entry Area” on the waters off of Jones Beach, which is marked by the red box in the picture above.
Spectators and boaters are advised to observe the boundaries of the SLR area established for the safety of air show participants and the general public during the event.
Individuals found in violation of a SLR may be subject to civil penalties, which include but are not limited to termination of voyage, suspension and revocation of license, and fines up to $5,000.
