Hawkesbury River: Exclusive Use this Weekend
21 March 2012
Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of speed boat races this weekend (24, 25 March).
Maritime Acting Regional Manager Hawkesbury/ Broken Bay Hendrik Clasie said boaters should keep clear of the Hawkesbury River at Windsor, between South Creek and the Windsor Bridge, between 9am and 5pm.
“This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of power boat races organised by the Upper Hawkesbury Power Boat Club,” 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 Maritime Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.
