Lake Albert: Exclusive Use this Weekend
22 March 2012
Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of a water ski racing event on Lake Albert this weekend.
Maritime Regional Manager Murray/ Inland Scott Kidd said boaters should keep clear of the whole of the navigable waters of the lake between 8.30am and 6pm.
“This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of ski racing organised by Ski Racing Australia,” 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.”
“Control vessels will be in place on the lake to advise boaters of the closure.”
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.
