.
Roads and Maritime Services is alerting boaters to avoid navigating an area in Kogarah Bay adjacent to Vista Street near St. George Motor Boat Club to give way for the staging of speed boat races from 9 a.m to 4.30 p.m Saturday.

Maritime Botany Bay/Port Hacking Operations Manager Graeme Dunlavie said boaters should keep clear of the bay in an area parallel to Vista Street, Sans Souci near the St George Motor Boat Club.

'This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of a speed boat race organised by the St George Motor Boat Club,' Mr Dunlavie said.

'The course will run about 1000 metres north/south and 200 metres into Kogarah Bay and be marked by orange buoys.

'For safety reasons, skippers should avoid this area as it will be restricted for the event and patrolled by club and control vessels,' he said.

Mr Dunlavie said vessels would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by a boating safety officer or a police officer.

That’s a good thing right? – So we don’t blow up every time we take a swim or go out in the rain. Likewise so we don’t dry up in the sun.
