The U. S. Navy and City of San Francisco are sponsoring the Annual Fleet Week Parade of Navy Ships and Air Show Demonstration to be held October 5 thru October 8, 2006. Due to the security concerns associated with the participating naval vessels and hazards associated with the air show demonstration, 33 CFR 100.1105 is necessary to provide for the safety of event participants, spectator craft, and other vessels transiting the event area. Under the provisions of 33 CFR 100.1105, a vessel may not enter Regulated area ‘‘Alpha’’ or ‘‘Bravo’’, unless it receives permission from the Coast Guard Patrol Commander. Additionally, no person or vessel may enter or remain within 500 yards ahead of the lead Navy parade vessel, within 200 yards astern of the last parade vessel, or within 200 yards on either side of any parade vessel. Spectator vessels may safely transit outside the regulated area but may not anchor, block, loiter in, or impede the transit of ship parade participants or official patrol vessels. The Coast Guard may be assisted by other Federal, State, or local law enforcement agencies in enforcing the SLR. Because this SLR will be in effect for a limited period, it should not result in a significant disruption of maritime traffic. Additionally, the maritime community will be provided advance notification of these events via the Local Notice to Mariners. Dated: September 8, 2006. J.A.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing special local regulations during the ‘‘Poquoson Seafood Festival PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 58279 Workboat Races’’, a marine event to be held October 15, 2006 on the waters of the Back River, Poquoson, Virginia. These special local regulations are necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the event. This action is intended to temporarily restrict vessel traffic in a portion of the Back River during the event. DATES: This rule is effective from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on October 15, 2006. ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the docket, are part of docket (CGD05–06– 075) and are available for inspection or copying at Commander (dpi), 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, Fifth Coast Guard District, Inspections and Investigations Branch, at (757) 398– 6204. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information On August 1, 2006, we published a Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Special Local Regulations for Marine Events; Back River, Poquoson, VA in the Federal Register (71 FR 43400). We received no letters commenting on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. 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, support craft and other vessels transiting the event area. However, advance notifications will be made to affected waterway users via marine information broadcasts, area newspapers and local radio stations. Background and Purpose On October 15, 2006, the City of Poquoson will sponsor ‘‘Poquoson Seafood Festival Workboat Races’’ on the Back River, immediately adjacent and south of Messick Point. The event will consist of approximately 60 traditional Chesapeake Bay deadrise workboats racing along a marked strait line race course in heats of 2 to 4 boats for a distance of approximately 600 yards. Due to the need for vessel control during the event, the Coast Guard will temporarily restrict vessel traffic in the event area to provide for the safety of E:\FR\FM\03OCR1.SGM 03OCR1
