The U.S. Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the navigable waters of the Sabine River in Orange, TX in support of Deep South Racing Association (DSRA) boat races, with effect between 8.30am and 6.00pm from 31 May through 1 June.

The temporary safety zone is necessary to protect the surrounding public and vessels from the hazards associated with a boat race competition.

Persons and vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring within this safety zone unless authorized by the  COTP or his designated representative.
