BoatUS is urging boaters, cruisers and sailors, as well as those who benefit from visiting boater spending, to attend a public meeting Thursday hosted by city officials in Sarasota, Fla., where the possibility of anchoring regulations for recreational boats will be discussed.

BoatUS said the agenda will center on proposals to limit the number of days a boat can remain on anchor as well as to determine a “set back” limit on the number of feet an anchored boat must be from private or public land.

Sarasota is one of five cities in Florida’s mooring and anchoring pilot project, which gives the municipality the ability to limit anchoring.
