SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On March 15, 2012, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
entitled ''Special Local Regulations for Marine Events; Temporary 
Change of Dates for Recurring Marine Events in the Fifth Coast Guard 
District, Bogue Sound; Morehead City, NC'' in the Federal Register (77 
FR 15320). The proposed rulemaking would have altered the period of 
enforcement of the Special Local Regulation listed in 33 CFR 
100.501(d)(3). The subject event was going to be rescheduled from the 
fourth or last Sunday in September to the third Saturday and Sunday in 
September. The proposed regulation would have closed a portion of the 
waters of Bogue Sound to vessel traffic during the boat race during the 
altered period of enforcement. No other changes to the underlying 
regulation were proposed.

Withdrawal

    The sponsor of the ``Crystal Coast Super Boat Grand Prix'' has 
informed the Coast Guard that he will hold the event on a date within 
the limitations published and listed in 33 CFR 100.501(d)(3).

Authority

    We issue this notice of withdrawal under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 
552(a), 44 U.S.C. 1505(a)(3), and 33 CFR 1.05-1.

    Dated: June 11, 2012.
A. Popiel,
Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Captain of the Port North Carolina.
