On April 3, 2013, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Special Local Regulations; Marine Events, Spa Creek and Annapolis Harbor; Annapolis, MD” in the Federal Register (78 FR 20066). The rulemaking concerned the Coast Guard's proposal to establish temporary special local regulations on specified waters of Spa Creek and Annapolis Harbor at Annapolis, MD, effective from 6 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on July 20, 2013. The regulated area included all waters of the Spa Creek and Annapolis Harbor, from shoreline to shoreline, bounded by a line drawn near the entrance of Spa Creek originating at latitude 38°58′40″ N, longitude 076°28′49″ W, thence south to latitude 38°58′32″ N, longitude 076°28′45″ W.

We issue this notice of withdrawal under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 1233.
