(ii) That the interest of safety of life on the navigable waters of the United States requires specific change or changes in the application before it can be approved; or
(iii) That the event requires no regulation or patrol of the regatta or marine parade area; or
(iv) That the application is not approved, with reasons for such disapproval.
