Pipers Creek: exlusive use for power boat races this weekend
5 July 2012
Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of power boat races at Pipers Creek, Forster, this weekend.
Maritime Regional Manager Hunter/Inland Sonia McKay said boaters should keep clear of Pipers Creek at Forster Keys between 11.30am and 3pm on Saturday and 11am and 3pm on Sunday.
“This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of power boat races organised by Taree Powerboat Aquatic Club,” Ms McKay said.
“For safety reasons, skippers should avoid this area as it will be restricted for the event and patrolled by control vessels.”
Ms McKay said vessels would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by a Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.
