Unfortunately due to closure of the launching ramps ASC will not be able to launch race management boats for day one of the ASC HOT UP series this Saturday.
The West Beach Boat Launch will remain closed until Thursday, 7 September while seagrass is removed from around the ramps and in the channel.
The dredging operation has been successful, and a huge amount of seagrass has been removed from land and in the harbour.
We are expecting another storm front to arrive on Saturday evening, which will bring several days of strong wind that could force more seagrass into the harbour. If that happens, we want to be prepared to be able to remove it as quickly as possible.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure have issued a Notice to Mariners No 17 of 2017, advising boat users to use caution.
Alternative boat launching facilities are available at O’Sullivan’s Beach or North Haven.
