Boaters are reminded to keep clear of a section of Hunter River near Berry Park this weekend for the safe staging of a rowing regatta.

Roads and Maritime Services has granted the Endeavour Rowing Club an exclusive use Aquatic Licence to host the event on the Hunter River near Duckenfield between 7.30am and 5.30pm on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September.

The area established near the Endeavour Rowing Club at Berry Park will be marked with inflatable buoys and monitored by control vessels. A transit zone will be in place to allow vessels to navigate through the area safely.

Vessels not involved in the event should not enter the marked area unless authorised by a boating safety officer or a police officer. Fines may apply.

Roads and Maritime reminds people to wear a lifejacket when boating, especially in vessels smaller than 4.8 metres when alone, at night or offshore.
