Clarence River: Exclusive Use this Sunday
23 November 2011
NSW Maritime has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of a school rowing event on the Clarence River this Sunday.
NSW Maritime Regional Manager North Coast James Green said boaters should avoid the 2km course, which will be marked with buoys, adjacent to Memorial Park, Prince Street, Grafton (north of Susan Island).
“This area will be exclusively for the safe staging of the Grafton High School Rowing Club event between 6am and 6pm,” Mr Green said.
“For safety reasons, skippers should avoid these areas as they will be restricted for the event and patrolled by control vessels.”
Mr Green 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.
NSW Maritime is part of Roads and Maritime Services.
