Boaters take care on Wyangala Dam this weekend
13 October 2011
NSW Maritime has issued an exclusive use aquatic licence for Wyangala Dam in NSW’s central west this weekend for waterski races.
NSW Maritime Regional Manager Hunter Inland Sonia McKay said that the event is to be held on the Wyangala Dam between 8am and 6pm on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 October.
“An exclusive use area will be established on the navigable waters of the Wyangala Dam within 200 metres of the race course. The area will be marked by inflatable buoys,” Ms McKay said.
“The area is for use only by authorised vessels and will be patrolled by control vessels which will direct vessel operators not to enter. No unauthorised vessels are permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by event organisers, a NSW Maritime Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.”
