Upper Hawkesbury: Exclusive Use this Weekend
9 December 2011
NSW Maritime has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of powerboat club races on the Upper Hawkesbury River this weekend.
NSW Maritime Acting Regional Manager Hawkesbury/ Broken Bay Hendrik Clasie said boaters should avoid the area of the Upper Hawkesbury at Governor Phillip Park, Windsor, between South Creek and Windsor Bridge from 9am to 5pm both Saturday and Sunday.
“This area will be exclusively for the safe staging of Upper Hawkesbury Power Boat Club races,” Mr Clasie said.
“For safety reasons, skippers should avoid these areas as they will be restricted for the event and patrolled by control vessels.”
Mr Clasie 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.
