critical to keep the air waves clear of non-essential information or discussions. Obviously your
cell phones can help facilitate communications. But if any phones get wet, or don’t work on US-
based cell phone networks, you will not be able to rely on phones. Make sure you check such cell-
phone access early in your visit or event and plan accordingly. Charge your radio battery before
you go out!

Please note that every power-driven vessel of 40 meters (approximately 131 feet) or more
in length, while navigating and every towing vessel of 8 meters (approximately 26 feet) or more
in length, while navigating must also check in with Vessel Traffic Service on the appropriate
Channel. This rule applies to Naval vessels, for instance, due to their length, and this also
applies to smaller vessels who are planning or assigned to tow any other boat(s) during the event
(such as Flying Dutchman, in or out of Port), whether as part of the
          planned events or in the case
of an emergency such as mechanical failure or a disabled operator. Please see Appendices 1 & 2
for more information on communicating with the Harbor’s Vessel Traffic
Service, and be mindful that for the vessels which meet the above criteria
this communication is MANDATORY.

                                                                                                      Formatted: Heading 3, Border:

For Vessels Transiting Hell Gate, Buttermilk Channel, or Around the Battery


Hell Gate, Buttermilk Channel, and The Battery are three areas of highest concentration of
commercial traffic in the Harbor and therefore areas of higher than average risk. The Battery
sees the greatest number of ferry movements in the entire U.S. every day. Buttermilk Channel
sees many ferry movements, plus tug-barge, as well as some Container and Cruise Ships. Please
be sure you are monitoring VHF CH 13 closely when navigating these areas so that you can
understand what is moving ahead of or around you. For instance, all departing Staten Island
and Governor Island ferries make radio calls on VHF Ch. 13 when departing Lower Manhattan.
They aim to keep with their schedule so we suggest you give them plenty of room.



Hell Gate, the area generally between Manhattan, Queens, Randalls Island and the Bronx,
deserves special attention, care, and ADVANCE PLANNING.

      The currents in this area can frequently exceed 4 knots

      The channel is quite narrow – less than 160 meters or 540 feet

      The stretch of water has three sharp turns and therefore 3 “blind spots” where you most
       likely will not be able to see approaching traffic until it’s too late!

Basically, if you do not plan your navigation through this stretch of water carefully then you pose
a great safety risk to yourself, other vessels, the environment, and anyone else in the area!

We have been asked by the US Coast Guard specifically to transit this area in small boats as
follows:

   1) Plan to do so approximately 1 hour after slack water (slack water is when most
      commercial traffic plans to transit; 1 hour afterward will allow most traffic to clear the
      area;

   2) Make sure you contact Vessel Traffic Service via VHF Radio Channel 12 BEFORE you
      begin this Navigation so as to ensure proper clearance between you/ your vessel and any
      other commercial traffic in this area;
     3) If NY400 vessels are transiting Hell Gate in as a group then
        designate a “Lead” or “Safety” Boat for the purposes of a) monitoring
        traffic, b) communicating with USCG Vessel Traffic Service, and providing first responder
        assistance if a collision, grounding, or other incident seems likely or should occur.


     4) If NY400 vessels are transiting in groups then you should plan to muster or gather:


                     When approaching from Long Island Sound please muster just south of South
                      Brother Island

                     When approaching from the Harbor or Atlantic Basin please muster just
                      south of the United Nations off Manhattan.

        Once you are together then make contact with VTS via VHF Radio to help you determine
        a time for safe passage.

Please note: Commercial Traffic and some passenger traffic in this area should be considered
restricted in their ability to maneuver, therefore they will have right of way. Again, when
navigating this area proceed with extreme caution and ONLY do so with clearance from Vessel
Traffic Service.

Again, prior to your approach to Hell Gate make sure you contact Vessel Traffic Service via VHF
Radio Channel 12 BEFORE you begin this Navigation so as to ensure proper clearance between
you/ your vessel and any other commercial traffic in this area.

Event Organizers to also provide guidance on any other techniques/ information that might be
useful for their event participants, we also ask that you communicate clearly with the Safety and
Support vessels assisting with your events, transits, and voyages. For instance

      a vessel responding to a fire aboard your boat may need to know whether your vessel is
       gasoline powered versus diesel, the presence of compressed gases, or other flammable
       materials;

      If you are entering an area of water such as Hell Gate, where the currents can exceed 4 or
       even 5 knots during certain times, you must advise your Safety Officer if there is the
       chance you cannot maintain forward progress or steerage in such a situation so as to avoid
       other vessels or risk to yourself;

      If you find that your batteries or pumps are not functioning properly, or that the integrity
       of your hull has been compromised in anyway, you may need to end your participation in
       an event, voyage, or transit and seek safe harbor or immediate assistance;

      If a crew member or guest becomes ill or overcome by heat then information about pre-
       existing medical conditions will be critical to provide to first responders and emergency
       care providers.

It is difficult to be prepared for every scenario, but you must be prepared to act in every instance
to maintain the safety and security of your guests, your crew, your vessel, as well as all of the
other participants in your event as well as ALL of the NY400 events and other Harbor users.

              An incident should be defined as an illness, an injury, and/ or a mechanical failure
          of a vessel (such as hull damage or engine failure) or equipment such as buoy, anchor,
          floating dock, gangway, or other hardware.

             Every participant should notify their Safety Officer about the sounding of a danger
          signal by any commercial or other harbor user during and near an event. As our event
          permit states, we cannot interfere with commercial navigation of the harbor and area
          waterways. Any action or inaction on your part that results in a close quarters or other
          potentially risky situation brings the potential to threaten, restrict, or even cancel
          subsequent NY400 events. All participants are asked to please report any such
          incident or near-incident.
             Event participants should keep in mind that the NY400 Safety
          Officer will maintain contact with the appropriate authorities and
          stakeholders as to the start and end time for the events, as well as for all matters
          relating to management of any and all on-water incidents ranging from mechanical
          malfunction to human injury. This way, you and your crew and guests can focus on the
          successful execution and enjoyment of your event. We appreciate all of your effort
          expended in getting here and want you to enjoy the experience!

        Your Event Organizers and Safety Officers for each event have created a list of Safety         bullets or numbering

Equipment that each vessel should provide. Items that must be included: all USCG required
safety equipment for your particular type of boat (e.g. PFDs, horn, etc. as required). Each
organizer and safety officer has also developed and disseminate a list of Recommended Safety
Equipment (e.g. extra throwable device(s); dock lines; fenders, anchor, etc.) as well as adequate
first aid kit, provisions to ensure hydration. When preparing for your transit, event, or voyage,
please give special consideration to the length of your trip, the weather expected, your familiarity
with area waterways, and the presence of guests or less-experienced personnel aboard. Make
sure you know how to call for help. Make sure your vessel can communicate with first
responders. Be prepared if your engine fails, someone becomes ill, or it gets dark earlier than you
thought it might. If you feel you have not received this information or proper guidance please
ask your Event Organizer. If you need any further information or guidance please contact
NY400 Safety Director Carter Craft at 1-917-709-3371.

those noted on the cover page, as well as around monuments and cultural sites such as the
Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, as well as Ferry Terminals and some passenger vessels in
transit like the Staten Island ferry or Cruise Ships). Other risks or potential occurrences will
arise, given the number of boats and the course involved (anchorages, course buoy and
navigation buoy locations or descriptions). Know the time line for your event and ask your
Safety Officer for guidance on when and how to return to port following the end of your event, or
your participation in an event.

Get Guidance in Advance – Do Your Own Due Diligence!


Each Event Organizer and Safety Officer must provide explicit and information to all
participants about what is to be expected in the course of your event, transit or voyage. What
does the weather hold? What will the current be doing as you pass through an area? Are there
particular times of the tide when it will be easier and safer to dock or depart? What will other
traffic in the area be doing?

We have asked that this information be provided to you in writing in advance of the event,
during the pre-event briefings, and immediately before the beginning of the event via VHF radio
on the appropriate Channel. It is your responsibility to know and understand this information.
If you feel uninformed please seek out more information from your Organizer and your Safety
Officer. If you need any further information or guidance please contact NY400 Safety Director
Carter Craft at 1-917-709-3371.

"Your event is subject to the Navigation Rules of the Road (also known as the “Nav Rules”) which
govern your actions as the Captain of your vessel. NY400, as the Supervising Official of each
Event, has committed to the US Coast Guard that event participants will not interfere with
other marine traffic. All Vessels should monitor VHF - FM channels 13 for all Sector New York
Vessel Traffic Service Information and immediately comply with all Vessel Traffic Service
instructions. At no time are event participants authorized access to established federal security
zones or restricted areas. Event participants must also remain 25 yards clear of all commercial
waterfront facilities including any vessels moored to those facilities. All Vessels should also
monitor VHF Frequency Channel 68 for instructions and information related to their specific
event.

On the water, please follow the instructions of your Event Safety Officer, as well as your Safety
Boat Captains which will be helping you ensure the safety of the overall event.

ask your Organizer or your Safety Officer for a copy. In the event of an incident, there will not
be time to explain it over the airwaves. Everyone must be familiar with the Plan and ready to
take action.
In the course of the NY400 events anything may happen: illness, injury, collision, or worse.
Make sure you understands how and specifically who plans to respond to each scenario. Talk
through some of the most likely as a group. Get out on the water and see for yourself before your      Formatted: Underline
events so that you can suggest changes to your plan as needed. Double check the performance of
the safety equipment you are bringing. Check your engine, your electrical system, and any other
systems on your vessel or your self before you depart. Ask your other fellow participants if they
are prepared for the Event, Voyage or Transit. How can you help them be more prepared? The
safety and success of all the NY400 events relies on all of us assisting and looking out for each
other.
