Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 21335 SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing temporary special local regulations during the ‘‘U.S. Naval Academy crew races’’, a marine event to be held on the waters of the Severn River at Annapolis, Maryland on May 8 and 29, 2005. These special local regulations are necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the event. This action is intended to restrict vessel traffic on the Severn River during the event. DATES: This rule is effective from 5 a.m. on May 8, 2005 to 8 a.m. on May 29, 2005. ADDRESSES: Comments and material received from the public, as well as documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the docket, are part of docket CGD05–05–023 and are available for inspection or copying at Commander (oax), Fifth Coast Guard District, 431 Crawford Street, Portsmouth, Virginia 23704–5004, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dennis Sens, Project Manager, Auxiliary and Recreational Boating Safety Branch, at (757) 398–6204. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM. Publishing an NPRM would be impracticable and contrary to public interest because the event will take place before the comment period would end. For the safety concerns noted, it is in the public interest to have these regulations in effect during the event. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date would be contrary to the public interest, since immediate action is needed to ensure the safety of the event participants, spectator craft and other vessels transiting the event area. However advance notifications will be made to affected waterway users via marine information broadcasts and area newspapers. Background and Purpose On May 8 and 29, 2005, the U.S. Naval Academy will host crew races on the waters of the Severn River at Annapolis, Maryland. The event will consist of intercollegiate crew rowing teams racing along a 2000 meter course on the waters of the Severn River. A E:\FR\FM\26APR1.SGM 26APR1
