Boaters are reminded to take additional care on the Hawkesbury River this Saturday with an aquatic licence granted for the safe staging of canoe races.
Changed conditions will be in place for boaters while the canoe race event is under way from Macquarie Park at Windsor to the Sackville Ferry from 4pm to midnight on Saturday.
This event is being organised by the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic Association.
The area will be monitored by control vessels at both ends of the races and Roads and Maritime Services boating safety officers will also be operating in the area.
