Sail-World.com : RMS calls for safe staging of Southern 80 water ski event
RMS calls for safe staging of Southern 80 water ski event

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is reminding skippers to put safety first during the Southern 80 water ski race on the Murray River this weekend. Maritime Principal Manager South, Craig Whitmore said RMS had granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of the race which covers 80 kilometres from Torrumbarry to Echuca

'Safety will be the utmost priority as the race involves power vessels and skiers travelling at high speed,' Mr. Whitmore said.

'Boaters are reminded this is an exclusive use event meaning no vessels other than those competing are to be on the course during the event.

'Under no circumstances should anyone attempt to swim across the river.

'When the river is opened to the public, boaters must remember to keep to the right, travel at a safe speed and keep a proper lookout.

'RMS Boating Safety Officers will be coordinating joint patrols with NSW Police for random breath testing to take place across the weekend.

'Skippers should also remember the blood alcohol limit on the water is the same as on the road – 0.05.

'Control vessels will mark each end of the course and advise spectator craft of the river closure. 'For safety reasons, occupants of moored vessels in the race area are urged to vacate their vessels during the event,' Mr. Whitmore said.

Exclusive use areas will apply on both days:

Saturday

• 6am to midday from Torrumbarry Weir to the 1712 kilometre river marker at Victoria Park at Echuca, then
• Midday to 7pm from the 1690 kilometre river marker at Perricoota Marina, Goldsborough Road at Moama to the 1712 kilometre river marker at Victoria Park, Echuca.

Sunday

• 6am to 7pm from the Torrumbarry Weir to the 1712 kilometre marker at the Victoria Park Boat Ramp at Echuca.
