No. 72 of 2019
Navigation and Mooring Restrictions
Sun 4th Aug 2019
Waterways Ireland wishes to advise all masters and users of the Shannon Navigation of navigation and mooring restrictions in Carrick- on- Shannon to facilitate the Rowing Club Regatta on Sunday 4th August 2019.
The Regatta will be held on a 500 metres stretch of water immediately south of the town bridge commencing at 0900hrs and finishing at approx 1800hrs.
Craft wishing to make a through passage will be facilitated every 2 hrs approximately, during the course of the regatta.
Masters should note that ONLY vessels of an overall length of 22ft. / 6.8m or less will be permitted on the floating jetties from Wednesday 31st July to Sunday 4th August.
This is necessary in the interest of marine safety and to facilitate the laying of the competition course.
Vessels berthed from Wednesday at 1600hrs will be required to remain in place until racing finishes at approx 1800hrs on Sunday 4 August.
No vessels should approach the jetties between 1600hrs on Wednesday and approx 1800hrs on Sunday as the entrance to the berths will be closed off and manoeuvring room will be severely restricted due to the proximity of the course.
Masters are advised to proceed at slow speed and with due caution and to take note of advice from course marshals when passing through the area.
Waterways Ireland takes this opportunity to thank its customers for their co-operation with these arrangements.
