On April 12, 2013, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Special Local Regulations; Marine Events, Breton Bay; St. Mary's County, Leonardtown, MD” in the Federal Register (78 FR 21864). The rulemaking concerned the Coast Guard's proposal to establish temporary special local regulations on specified waters of Breton Bay, in St. Mary's County, MD, effective from 8 a.m. on July 13, 2013 to 5 p.m. on July 14, 2013. The regulated area included all waters of Breton Bay, from shoreline to shoreline, within an area bounded to the east by a line drawn along latitude—38°16′45″ N, and bounded to the west by a line drawn along longitude 076°38′30″ W, located at Leonardtown, MD. The regulations were needed to temporarily restrict vessel traffic during the event to provide for the safety of participants, spectators and other transiting vessels.


The Coast Guard is withdrawing this rulemaking because the event has been cancelled.


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