Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of water ski races at Bathurst Reach on the Hawkesbury River this weekend.
Maritime Acting Regional Manager Hawkesbury/ Broken Bay Hendrik Clasie said boaters should keep clear of the area between Webbs Creek and Walkers Beach on the Hawkesbury River between 8am and 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
“This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of the 2-Up Series Ski Races,” Mr Clasie said.
“For safety reasons, skippers should avoid this area as it will be restricted for the event and patrolled by control vessels.”
Mr Clasie said vessels would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by event organisers, a Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.
