                within the explosive arc. The safety zone is open to all persons and
                vessels for transitory use, but vessel operators desiring to anchor or
                otherwise loiter within the safety zone must obtain the permission of
                the Captain of the Port San Francisco or a designated representative.
                All persons and vessels operating within the safety zone must comply
                with all directions given to them by the Captain of the Port (COTP) San
                Francisco or a designated representative.
                DATES: The regulations in 33 CFR 165.1198 will be enforced from 12:01
                a.m. on March 3, 2022, until 11:59 p.m. on March 8, 2022.
                FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions about this

                March 8, 2022, or as announced via marine local broadcasts. This safety
                zone is necessary to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine

                regulation for this safety zone, Sec. 165.1198, specifies the location
                of the safety zone which encompasses the navigable waters in the area

                periods, as reflected in Sec. 165.1198(d), if you are the operator of
                a vessel in the regulated area you must comply with the instructions of
                the COTP or the designated on-scene patrol personnel. Vessel operators
                desiring to anchor or otherwise loiter within the safety zone must
                contact Sector San Francisco Vessel Traffic Service at 415-556-2760 or

                Register, the Coast Guard plans to provide notification of this
                enforcement period via marine information broadcasts.
