RIVER users have been advised by newspaper advertising that a wakeboarding competition will be conducted on the River Derwent at New Norfolk between the Nomads Ski Club on Boyer Rd and the Millbrook Rise boat ramp off Hobart Rd between 8am and 6pm today (Saturday, November 22).
Marine and Safety Tasmania advises that boats not competing in the event should stay clear of the course at all times and take notice of instructions from competition officials in the appropriately marked vessels. The 5 knot limit is revoked for those vessels competing.
This should be a spectacular event on the river. It's a shame it hasn't been more effectively promoted.
