Hawkesbury River: Exclusive Use this Weekend
24 February 2012
Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of speed boat races this weekend (25, 26 February).
Roads and Maritime Services, Maritime Acting Regional Manager Hawkesbury/ Broken Bay Hendrik Clasie said boaters should keep clear of the Cambridge Reach section of the Hawkesbury River between 8.30am and 5.30pm both days.
“This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of power boat races organised by Dargle Farm,” Mr Clasie said.
“For safety reasons, skippers should keep clear of this area as it 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.
