Maryland Natural Resources Police are reminding boaters that a section of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Ocean City will be closed this weekend for an offshore race.

The affected area stretches for about a mile between 3rd Street and 30th Street in Ocean City, and will be closed on Sunday between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. for the Offshore Powerboat Races.

The Maryland department of Natural Resources says the area will be marked with buoys and patrolled by police boats. The department says for the safety of the racers and spectators, all other vessels will be prohibited from entering the restricted area.

Anyone looking to go boating near Ocean City this weekend can also expect delays and congestion at the West Ocean City Public Ramp during practice runs on Saturday, and again on Sunday as boats are loaded and unloaded.
