Keep out boaties! Dragons get right of way in Tweed River
BOATERS have been advised to keep clear of the Tweed River at Murwillumbah later this month for the safe staging of the Dragon Boat Race.
The New South Wales Roads and Maritime Services has issued a warning that river conditions will change from Grassy Island at Condong to a turning buoy south of Murwillumbah bridge from noon to 4pm on Saturday, May 24
The Dragon Boat Race has been granted an exclusive-use aquatic licence on the river.
Skippers should avoid this area as it will be closed to recreational and commercial boating for safety reasons.
Vessels not involved in the event should not enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by a boating safety officer or a police officer.
