  • CHANGED BOATING CONDITIONS ON SYDNEY HARBOUR FOR EXTREME SAILING 2015
  • December 11, 2015
Boaters are reminded changed boating conditions are in place on Sydney Harbour until this Sunday 13 December for the safe staging of the Extreme Sailing 2015 event.

Roads and Maritime Services has declared Extreme Sailing a special aquatic event for which an exclusion zone will apply.

A special event area, with an exclusion zone within, will be established in the waters bounded by imaginary lines drawn between:

• Dawes Point and Milsons Point under the Sydney Harbour Bridge
• Kirribilli Point to Robertson Point
• Robertson Point through the port lateral mark off Garden Island to the northern tip of Garden Island
• Bennelong Point to Dawes Point.

Today from 12pm to 6.30pm, and Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 December from 12pm to 5.15pm, the exclusion zone will be in place for racing.

The exclusion zone will be marked with inflatable buoys and monitored by control vessels. Vessels not involved in the event should not enter the marked area unless authorised by a boating safety officer or a police officer.

For vessels operating within the special event area during the listed times a six knot speed limit and minimum wash zone will apply within 200 metres of the exclusion zone.

A map with the exclusion zone, special event transit zone, buoy locations, no anchoring areas, and other relevant details is available http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/about/news-events/sydneys-summer-aquatic-events/index.html

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.
