Barway Update, May 2010

Summer is over and boating activity has dropped off with only 3 boats requiring an escort into St Helens during April.

The southern channel on the St Helens Barway is maintaining its position, generally providing good access. Care should be taken by mariners unfamliar with the barway and at all times during heavier weather. Please contact us for advice or an escort.

Marine and Safety Tasmania (MAST) has received approval to commence dredging the shoals at Pelican Point in June and July 2010. These works are long overdue, with the shoals preventing many vessels from entering Georges Bay.
