Murrumbidgee River: Exclusive Use this Sunday
24 February 2012
Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of a regatta on the Murrumbidgee River at Wagga Wagga this Sunday.
Maritime Regional Manager Murray/ Inland Scott Kidd said boaters should keep clear of the river from the Eunony Bridge Reserve to the Wiradjuri Reserve from 9am to 5pm.
“This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of the Gumi Race regatta organised by the Apex Club of South Wagga Wagga,” Mr Kidd 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 Kidd 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.
