Tweed River: Exclusive Use this Sunday
25 November 2011
NSW Maritime has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of a swimming race on the Tweed River this Sunday.
NSW Maritime Regional Manager North Coast James Green said boaters should avoid the area of the Tweed River between Murwillumbah and Condong road-bridges, which will be clearly marked by buoys.
“This area will be exclusively for the safe staging of the Tweed River Classic between 7am and 11am on Sunday,” 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.
