NSW Maritime has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of the Australian Wooden Power Boat Association’s 2011 National Regatta on Lake Talbot this coming weekend.
NSW Maritime Regional Manager Murray/Inland Scott Kidd said boaters should avoid the whole of the navigable waters of Lake Talbot between 8am and 7pm on both Saturday and Sunday October 30th and 31st.
'For safety reasons, skippers should avoid planning trips on Lake Talbot this weekend,' Mr Kidd said. 'The lake will be maintained and monitored by club control vessels.'
Mr Kidd said unauthorised vessels would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by event organisers, a NSW Maritime Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.
