Lake Albert: Exclusive Use this Weekend
24 November 2011
NSW Maritime has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of the swim leg of a triathlon on Lake Albert, Wagga Wagga, this weekend.
NSW Maritime Acting Regional Manager Murray/ Inland Bill Neyland said boaters should avoid the whole of the navigable waters of Lake Albert for the duration of the event.
“This area will be exclusively for the safe staging of the swim leg of the Elite Energy Pty Ltd Triwagga Triathlon Festival between 6.30am and 12pm on Saturday, and between 9.30am and 12.30pm on Sunday,” 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.
NSW Maritime is part of Roads and Maritime Services.
