Maritime Regional Manager Murray/ Inland Scott Kidd said boaters should keep clear of the whole of the navigable waters of Lake Albert between 7am and 6pm on both Saturday and Sunday for the safe staging of the event.
'This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of the Barry Carne Water Ski Races,' Mr Kidd said.
'For safety reasons, skippers should avoid this area as it will be restricted for the event and patrolled by control vessels.'
Mr Kidd said vessels would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by event organisers, a Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.
