A regatta of sailboats

In order to hold a race, regatta, or tournament on federally controlled waters, a permit from the U.S. Coast Guard is required. When the marine event is held on state waters, a permit is not required, but the event sponsor is responsible for ensuring the public’s welfare. Vessel operators competing in marine events may test the vessels prior to the event only if the operators have first obtained a permit from the AZGFD.
