Be safe on the water this Crab Fest

Skippers are being urged to check the status of their vessel registration as part of planning to be on the water for Crab Fest 2015 at Mandurah.

Skippers are being urged to check the status of their vessel registration as part of planning to be on the water for Crab Fest 2015 at Mandurah.

Department of Transport (DoT) Senior Marine Officer for the Peel Region Adam Rando said skippers should also ensure they have the required safety gear on board, including navigation lights, if they plan to be on the water after dark or before sunrise.

 “Crab Fest is a wonderful event and boating enthusiasts who properly prepare their vessel and plan their trip significantly reduce the risk of being involved in an incident on the water,” Mr Rando said.

“Following a recent increase in vessels found to be on the water without current registration, it is timely to remind skippers it is their responsibility to ensure their vessel is registered to be on the water.”

The temporary on water closures and special arrangements in place for Crab Fest 2015 commencing Friday March 13, 2015 and concluding Sunday March 15, 2015 include:

  • Waters downstream of the Old Mandurah Traffic Bridge extending from Carter Street, north east to Dorsodura Way and to the Port Mandurah Canals will close 15 minutes before the wakeboarding event and fireworks display.
  • A vessel holding area, marked with orange buoys, will be available downstream of the closed waters to view the fireworks.
  • Vessels can’t anchor within a 100 metre radius of the fireworks launching area and there’s strictly no entry to the closed waters.
  • For the wakeboard event, slider ramp systems will be installed Thursday 12 March 2015 and will remain until Monday 16 March 2015. They will be lit to beyond international requirements to ensure visibility. Those navigating the area are to proceed with extreme caution, at a safe speed not exceeding 5 knots.  Navigation warnings will also be broadcast to alert skippers.

DoT Marine Officers and Peel Water Police Officers will be patrolling during the event to monitor safety compliance and assist members of the boating community.
