Clarence River: Exclusive Use this Weekend
22 February 2012
Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging ski races on the Clarence River, at Grafton, this weekend.
Roads and Maritime Services, Maritime Regional Manager North Coast Jim Green said boaters should keep clear of an area which will be established on the Clarence River between Concoran Park, Kirchner Street, Grafton and an area about 3.5 kilometres downstream between 8am and 5pm both days.
“This area will be used exclusively for ski races organised by the Big River Ski Club,” Mr Green said.
“The area will be marked by buoys.”
“For safety reasons, skippers should keep clear of this area as it will be restricted for the event and patrolled by control vessels.”
Mr Green 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.
