Murray River: Exclusive Use Saturday
18 November 2011
NSW Maritime has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of the 2011 Barrie Beehag Water-Ski Classic tomorrow on the Murray River.
NSW Maritime Acting Regional Manager Murray/ Inland Bill Neyland said boaters should avoid the area from 525m upstream of the 1662km river marker to the Torrumbarry Weir.
“This area will be exclusively for the safe staging of the ski event from 6am to 6pm,” Mr Neyland said.
“For safety reasons, skippers should avoid these areas as they will be restricted for the event and patrolled by control vessels.”
Mr Neyland said unauthorised vessels would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by event organisers, a NSW Maritime Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.
