Navigation restrictions on Lake Talbot

NSW Maritime is urging skippers to stay clear of the exclusive use zone for the waterski tournament on Lake Talbot, Narrandera, on Friday 13 to Sunday 15 February 2009 inclusive.

NSW Maritime Murray-Inland regional manager Scott Kidd said that an exclusive use aquatic licence had been issued to event organiser Narrandera Aquatic Sports Club to conduct the waterski tournament on Lake Talbot.

“The exclusive use zone will be closed to recreational navigation from 7.30am-7.30pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 13-15 February 2009,” Mr Kidd said.

“The exclusive use zone has been established so that water skiers can enjoy safe access to Lake Talbot and its facilities for the duration of the water ski tournament.

“No recreational vessels, except vessels associated with the event, are to enter the exclusive use zone during the water ski tournament.

“The exclusive use area will be marked by buoys and we urge all skippers to keep clear of the area during the tournament.

“It’s a great recreational event and we hope that everyone enjoys the three-day water ski tournament on Lake Talbot.”
