In The Zone- Where We Can and Can’t Sail

DCIM100MEDIA
You may have noticed a bit of activity on the Inlet recently- with new No Boating signage and the moving of some markers on the water.  Its the result of Gippsland Ports modifying the Vessel Operating Zone Restrictions that apply for the Inlet.  From time to time, the Operating Zones are reviewed in light of the changing dynamics of the waterway.  The last review was about three years ago, and let...

IWC at Australian Wave Nats by Louise Bricknell

“What could possibly go Wrong?” “Enter? Me?” “Why not? What could possibly go wrong?” OK. It wasn’t that simple. It took the combined efforts of two dear friends - scheming - to get me to the event: no pressure to enter: “Just come and look!” So I looked. It was Cat Bay, about 10 - 12 knots, and ROCKS! “Don’t worry about the rocks? Just enter ... you don’t have to got out if you don’t ...
