Dear Regatta Organizer,
You have been invited to participate in the Northeast Coastal and Marine Recreational Use Characterization Study to help identify where, when, and how people recreate along the coast and in the ocean from Maine to New York. Information gathered will help ensure recreational uses are considered in the broader context of ocean planning. See attachment for information on the Northeast ocean planning effort. This link contains frequently asked questions about this project.
USCG Maritime Commons blog link and the 5-part Ballast Water Series link, from CDR Denning http://mariners.coastguard.dodlive.mil/.
This is a good source of information for the maritime community as articles are regularly posted by CG Headquarters on items of interest.
One of the recent items of interest mentioned at the POG meeting, a 5-part Ballast Water Series from RADM John Nadeau, the Assistant Commandant for Prevention Policy.
Here is a direct link to the first blog of the series, http://mariners.coastguard.dodlive.mil/2017/11/26/11272017-new-ballast-water-series-from-coast-guards-assistant-commandant-for-prevention-policy/
I’m happy to announce that the marine events survey component of the Northeast Coastal and Recreational Study, part of the Northeast ocean planning effort, is live. The marine events survey includes a specific survey track to characterize sailing races and regattas and can be accessed here. Please note that the survey is not optimized for mobile or tablet use, and should be accessed on a laptop or desktop computer. We are asking you participate in this survey and to please share this link with any sailing contacts in the region. The survey will be open until early May. I’ve attached the FAQ sheet which you can also pass along for context.
You may recall that we are characterizing distance races through a separate effort in which we will create a draft dataset depicting race routes and vet this dataset via webinar with race organizers. If you are interested in participating in this webinar, please indicate your availability using this doodle poll. At this point, April 13 from 1-2 is looking like the most popular option among the race organizers that we have reached out to. Thanks very much for your help in developing and disseminating this survey. Please let me know if you have any questions.
