Maritime Acting Regional Manager Hawkesbury/Broken Bay Hendrik Clasie said boaters should keep clear of the area south of Buff Point on Budgewoi Lake from 9am to 5pm.
'This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of the National Water Ski Racing Association Region V Australia Water 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.
