Newsletter for Offshore Residents of Pittwater, Australia  Volume 9, Issue 244 June 2007     


News from the Pittwater Users Group


1  Following the rains and high tides, a lot of seriously big floating objects eg trees are coming down the Hawkesbury

Whilst this does not seem to be evident in Pittwater, the message is to keep a good lookout at all times.
Please pick up any of the floaters, but if too big, ring NSW Maritime for collection (131256)
2  Due to continuing complaints about huge waves from power boats between Long Nose and Observation Point from many different people, including commercial operators, Mackeral Beach residents etc, it was agreed at the meeting on MON 18th June to introduce the No Wash zone up to a line between Observation Point and Mackeral Beach.
During the next 3 months, NSW Maritime will be advising and talking with the marinas, the dealers who sell the boats which are the main offenders, and the clubs such as the Royal Motor, as well as assembling complaints to put to Management to build a solid case to bring this No Wash zone into operation.
So, during July to September please notify NSW Maritime (131256) of any examples of power boats causing dangerous wash.
Any questions  ring Greg Roberts  99799599.
