>World Maritime Day

> Recently, the Coast Guard Commandant announced that the 2009 World Maritime Day Parallel Event will be held in New York City on 16 October. Although it is not required that other U.S. ports participate by holding simultaneous events, he is encouraging ports to do so. Therefore, if a World Maritime Day event is planned in your port, or you want to plan parallel events or activities, we are encouraging each Coast Guard Sector to work with your port partners and stakeholders.

Additional information can be found on the International Maritime Organization website.
