Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the waters of the Port Canaveral Harbor in Port Canaveral, Florida during the 12th Annual Saltwater Classic. The event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 27, 2013. This temporary safety zone is necessary for the safety of participant vessels, spectators, and the general public during the event. Persons and vessels are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Jacksonville or a designated representative. DATES: This rule is effective from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on April 27, 2013. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:22 Apr 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is issuing this final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because it is impracticable. The needs of this event were not determined until March 20, 2013, leaving insufficient time to undertake notice and comment. Approximately 750 vessels may participate in the fishing tournament, resulting in heavy vessel traffic within Port Canaveral Harbor. This event will occur on April 27, 2013, and temporary final rule is necessary to ensure the safety of life and vessels during the 12th Annual Saltwater Classic. For the same reason discussed above, 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 PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 24069 Register because it is impracticable and contrary to the public interest to delay this rule. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish regulated navigation areas and other limited access areas: 33 U.S.C. 1231; 46 U.S.C. Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, 160.5; Pub. L. 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. The purpose of the rule is to ensure the safety of life and vessels on a navigable waterway of the United States during the 12th Annual Saltwater Classic. On April 27, 2013, the Cox Events Group and K92.3–FM will host a fishing tournament offshore of Port Canaveral, FL. This temporary final rule establishes a safety zone in parts of Port Canaveral Harbor. Approximately 750 vessels may participate in the fishing tournament, resulting in heavy vessel traffic within Port Canaveral Harbor. This safety zone extends approximately 1100 yards west from Freddie Patrick Park and extends to the north 90 yards from the shoreline. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The safety zone is necessary to protect the tournament participants as well as other commercial traffic and the general public from traffic congestion associated with the tournament weigh-in. The safety zone will be enforced from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. on April 27, 2013. All persons and vessels not participating in the tournament weighin are prohibited from entering, transiting though, anchoring in, or remaining within the safety zone, unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Jacksonville or a designated representative. Persons and vessels may request authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the safety zone by contacting the Captain of the Port Jacksonville by telephone at (904) 564–7511, or a designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16, to request authorization. If authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the event area is granted by the Captain of the Port Jacksonville or a designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving such authorization must comply with the instructions of the Captain of the Port Jacksonville or a designated representative. The Coast Guard will provide notice of the safety zone by Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, and onscene designated representative. E:\FR\FM\24APR1.SGM 24APR1

    Under the provisions of 33 CFR 165.160, a vessel may not enter the 
regulated area unless given express permission from the COTP or the 
designated representative. Spectator vessels may transit outside the 
regulated area but may not anchor, block, loiter in, or impede the 
transit of other vessels. The Coast Guard may be assisted by other 
Federal, State, or local law enforcement agencies in enforcing this 
regulation.
    This notice is issued under authority of 33 CFR 165.160(a) and 5 
U.S.C. 552 (a). In addition to this notice in the Federal Register, the 
Coast Guard will provide mariners with advanced notification of 
enforcement periods via the Local Notice to Mariners and marine 
information broadcasts. If the COTP determines that the regulated area 
need not be enforced for the full duration stated in this notice, a 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners may be used to grant general permission to 
enter the regulated area.

    Dated: April 10, 2013.
