Chesapeake Bay Bridge swim-June 11

The annual “The Great Chesapeake Bay Swim” is scheduled to occur on Sunday, June 11, 20176. The 4.4-mile distance swim across the Chesapeake Bay will start at 8:30 am and finish at 12:30 pm As described in Title 33 CFR Sec. 100.501, a regulated area is established for all waters of the Chesapeake Bay between and adjacent to the spans of the William P. Lane Jr. Memorial Bridges from shoreline to shoreline, bounded to the north by a line drawn parallel and 500 yards north of the north bridge span that originates from the western shoreline at latitude 39°00 36.6 N., longitude 076°23 55 W., thence eastward to the eastern shoreline at latitude 38°59 14.2 N., longitude 076°19 57.3 W.; and bounded to the south by a line drawn parallel and 500 yards south of the south bridge span that originates from the western shoreline at latitude 39°00 18.4 N., longitude 076°24 28.2 W., thence eastward to the eastern shoreline at latitude 38°58 39.2 N., longitude 076°20 8.8 W. The regulated area will be enforced from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on June 11, 2017. Except for persons or vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Patrol Commander, and event sponsor-designated participants and marine event patrol vessels, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the regulated area. The Coast Guard Captain of the Port Maryland- National Capital Region can be contacted at telephone number (410) 576-2525 or 2693. The marine event patrol and Patrol Commander can be contacted on VHF-FM channel 16. The Patrol Commander or designated marine event patrol may forbid and control the movement of all vessels in the regulated area, and upon being hailed or signaled by an official patrol vessel, the operator of a vessel shall immediately comply with the instructions given. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the area, citation for failure to comply, or both. Persons or vessel operators may request authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area by contacting the Patrol Commander. When authorized to transit the regulated area, all vessels shall proceed at the minimum speed necessary to maintain a safe course that minimizes wake near the event area.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Bridge swim-June 11

Thanks, I am looking to transit the area this weekend. I knew the swim was happening, but the precise coordinates of the box is helpful.
