Dangerous sea conditions Australia's Victorian border to Smoky Cape

by Roads and Maritime Services on 14 Jun 2013
Dangerous conditions on river bars, east coast Australia SW
Following a Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) warning about dangerous surf conditions from the Victorian border to Smoky Cape on the mid north coast tomorrow Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has issued an alert. Skippers and owners of all small craft should be on high alert and check the conditions before considering crossing a coastal bar or heading offshore. Rock fishers should also check weather forecasts before heading out to decide if it is safe to fish near dangerous surf. Strong winds can also cause dangerous conditions for vessels on moorings which have been poorly maintained. Every skipper is responsible for the safety of their vessel and all on board. RMS advises skippers to: • Check the official weather forecast before and during boating • Ensure the boat and its equipment is suitable for the conditions • Log on/off with a Marine Rescue NSW marine radio base for every trip offshore • Wear a lifejacket.
