Any clue?
Yup, I've seen that there other years, Labor Day weekend.

I watched for a while through glasses:
* There were 2 patrol boats on station and they aggressively ran folks off that strayed within ~ 400 yards, but without radio traffic. Don't expect a channel 16 reply.
* A large launch was busy running visitors back and forth, presumably to the Naval Academy. A recruiting thing, I'm sure.
