Examples of conditions which are deemed to introduce extra or unusual hazards include, but are not limited to: an inherently hazardous competition, the customary presence of commercial or pleasure craft in the area, any obstruction to navigation which may result, and/or the expected accumulation of spectators or spectator craft. A completed application contains the signatures of the federal, state and/or local agencies specified on the application.
(3)The sponsor shall submit an advance copy of the application as soon as the event date(s) and location(s) have been determined by the sponsor. This copy will be without endorsements and serves to reserve the date(s) and location(s) until the completed application is received. Marine Event date(s) and location(s) are reserved on a first come, first serve basis.
