Coast Guard Issues Warnings Ahead of Weekend Events in Upper Peninsula

The U.S. Coast Guard is issuing several warnings ahead of two events this weekend in the Upper Peninsula.

A ‘no wake zone’ will be in effect from 7 a.m. until 6:30 Saturday night in Marquette Bay off Les Cheneaux Islands.

The Coast Guard says the zone will be in place because of this weekend’s Antique Boat Show.

A safety zone is also being created to protect swimmers in the Mighty Mac Swim as they attempt to swim across the Straits.

The zone will extend 250 yards from both sides of the bridge.

Boats will not be allowed in the zone from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.
