Marine Permit Meeting - March 14 at 48 North

U.S. Coast Guard Marine Permit Meeting
6:30 - 8:00 pm 
Tuesday, March 14 at the 48° North office

48° North will be hosting its annual meeting between the Coast Guard and organizations planning to conduct a marine event in the Puget Sound area. Marine event permits are required for any event that meets one or more of the following criteria:
  • The event takes place on or near navigable waters of the US.
  • The event takes place in or near an area designated as environmentally sensitive .
  • The event involves inherently hazardous competition (example speed boat race with vessels traveling greater than 30 mph).
  • The event could cause any obstruction to a navigable channel or change customary presence of commercial vessels.
Learn about:

• VTS Rules (Rule 10 in particular)
• How to communicate with the VTS
• USCG Vessel Safety Inspections

The purpose of this meeting is to allow event organizers the opportunity to meet face to face with the members of the Coast Guard that administer marine permitting in sector Puget Sound. The Coast Guard will present a program covering who must have a permit, why the permits are required and how to obtain and file the proper forms, followed by a question and answer session. There is typically time to informally meet with the Coast Guard crew after the question and answer session.
Please come by the 48° North office (6327 Seaview Ave. NW – behind West Marine on Shilshole Bay) any time after 6:00 pm to mingle with other event organizers and the 48° North staff. The presentation will begin at 6:30 pm. Call for directions if you haven't been here before, we can be hard to find.
