Pipers Creek, Forster: Exclusive Use this Saturday
26 April 2012
Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of a triathlon swim leg at Pipers Creek, Forster, this Saturday.
Maritime Regional Manager Hunter/ Inland Sonia McKay said boaters should keep clear of the area adjacent to Elizabeth Parade Reserve, between King George Parade and Wyuna Place between 10am and 1pm.
“This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of a swim race organised by Triathlon NSW,” Ms McKay said.
“For safety reasons, skippers should keep clear of this area as it will be restricted for the event and patrolled by control vessels.”
“The area will be marked by inflatable buoys and will be patrolled by control vessels which will advise vessel operators not to enter.”
Ms McKay said vessel operators would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by event organisers, a Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.
