Rotto boaters’ guide

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

ROT­TNEST Is­land has new Depart­ment of Trans­port rules for the 500,000 visi­tors who use boats to get to the hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion each year. “The new free guide in­cludes the rec­om­mended cour­ses to be taken by boats into pop­u­lar bays, and ex­plains how nav­i­ga­tion around the is­land has been made safer by re­cent work to up­grade and add mark­ers that cre­ate more clearly de­fined chan­nels into some of the bays,” DoT safety ed­u­ca­tion co-or­di­na­tor Lau­rie Adams said. Among other things, car­di­nal nav­i­ga­tion marks at Rocky, Stark and Mar­jorie bays are now lat­eral marks to re­duce con­fu­sion. The guide is at www.trans­port.wa.gov.au/boat­ing­guides.
