an important update for all sailers cruising the Queensland East Coast
. Earlier this year I posted a notice to mariners which advised of closures of anchorages
in the Shoal Bay area due to live fire exercises by our Military Services. It appears that due to substantial lobbying by fellow sailers common sense has prevailed and the notice to mariners has been amended opening several but not all the anchorages
in this area.
Please see the following document to identify the current
no go areas and safe anchorages.
Many thanks to those who put their concerns in writing to the appropriate authorities and also to our military personal for allowing common sense to prevail and doing a great job as well.
