TUGBOAT RACE SAFETY MESSAGE
Please be aware there will be a tugboat race in the inner harbour on Anniversary Day Monday 30th January. The race will start off Princes Wharf at 1000hrs and the ‘wash' is expected to create some rough water across the harbour particularly at the start.
The course is to Orakei where the tugs will round the two markers (20 and 19), head back down the harbour to round the laid Harbourmasters Buoy, 300m to the north of Westhaven Buoy which they will then round and head back to Queen’s Wharf for the finish at approximately 1045hrs.
Please keep clear of the course for the duration of the race. Skippers are also reminded to keep clear of Ports of Auckland operational areas
